Hollywood Stands United Behind New President-Elect


“God knows I fought hard for the other side,” The View’s Elisabeth Hasselbeck admitted on-air. “Today is a victory for this country,” she even managed a smile. “No one lost today.” Her comments, a shade different than her rabid Republican rantings of episodes past, are similar to the words of other celebs who today are celebrating a page in history. Who, today, are celebrating the stunning victory of a man named . “I haven’t felt this good,” she poured out seemingly heartfelt joy for the new President-elect, the first Democrat to get into the White House since Bill Clinton - and she isn’t alone.

Other stars are out in full force to share the smiles. “Hi, Mom. Obama won!” put the words on his Web site, decorated with a drawing of a smiling Barack.

“This is the beginning of a whole new world. This is a historical evening!” posed her grammatically incorrect (but wonderfully politically correct) sentiments at a San Diego concert Tuesday evening. “We are lucky to be sharing it with each other!” The singer gushed.

“Obama is our President!!!!!” blogged on her MySpace, telling everyone who voted - no matter who they voted for - that they “should be proud for voting in the first place.” Frequent Lohan companion Samantha Ronson added “Yes We Did,” in a shout-out to one of Obama’s more rousing campaign chants, “Yes, We Can!”

Actress said the “overwhelming hope that Obama inspires is infectious,” and said she’s “so proud of every citizen who took a stand, participated in the political process and insisted their voices be heard.”

“It’s a great day, it’s a beautiful morning, a new dawn, a new beginning, not just in America but the world over,” offered his positive words to the BBC, adding that “young white Americans - they don’t have the same views as their parents.”

And director , known for bucking the system, seems pleased with the administration for once. He speculated on the future of the country on his site: “What will it be like to have a smart president? Science, banished for eight years, will return. Imagine supporting our country’s greatest minds as they seek to cure illness, discover new forms of energy, and work to save the planet. I know, pinch me.” And me, too. Having lost much of my faith in the country sometime around four years ago (can you say re-election?), I wasn’t sure I would see this day. It seems Hollywood, like me, is suffering from an equal mix of joy and shock.

“I’m so excited right now!” Actor managed to find time to talk to the New York Daily News even as he celebrated at the Comedy Central party. “I got up at 7:20 this morning, and I voted for Barack. I haven’t had this much optimism in a long time. Tonight is historic!”

“It feels like hope won,” Winfrey threw in her two cents. “It feels like there’s a shift in consciousness. It feels like something really big and bold has happened here.”

Barack Obama

And, it has. And all of us can say that we were here. Whether or not you voted, whether or not you voted for the winner, we’re all here together, standing on the other side of one of America’s greatest days in history.

It feels a lot like hope.

Clinton needs to drop out immediately and back Obama if the Democrats want to win in the fall (which they should because of the toxic environment for Republicans these days...)[/quote] Well i am sure Hillary will go an support Obama against the Republicans. They need unity now since it is a very very important election.
