Leonardo"s Notebook by Mattheus Mei

I have been impressed with the urgency of doing. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Being willing is not enough; we must do.

Fonda endorses Carter 'strongly suggests' Obama

The Drudge Report has two interesting articles today. One is about Jane Fonda who as she was leaving a restaurant was asked who she's voting for, from the Swamp:

But a video camera was rolling as she approached the street and someone, perhaps just trying to get her to turn around for a picture, shouted out at her back, "Who are you going to vote for?"

There was a moment of silence. Then, the actress did turn around toward the cameras, paused and with a smile said simply, "Obama!" Then she got into a car and drove away.

And an African paper reported, and CNN has confirmed that former President Jimmy Carter has used his strongest language yet to show support for Senator Obama's bid without saying it directly:

"Don’t forget that Obama won in my state of Georgia," Carter said. "My town, which is home to 625 people, is for Obama, my children and their spouses are pro-Obama. My grandchildren are also pro-Obama."

"As a superdelegate, I would not disclose who I am rooting for but I leave you to make that guess," Carter added.

Some are concerened if the support of "Hanoi Jane" will hamper Obama and if there's any relevance to a Carter endorsement, both prominent residents of Georgia. Some even wonder what backlash he might suffer from the other vocal former President in this campaign. These 'star' power endorsements come on the heel of a rumoured united effort by the North Carolina congressional delegation to endorse Obama en masse.
