Angelina Jolie's Endorsement: Will McCain or Obama Get It?
Both John McCain (R-AZ) and Barack Obama (D-IL) are said to be seeking out the endorsement of one famous Hollywood actress - Angelina Jolie. The 33-year-old mother of six says she's waiting to reserve judgment on who'll she vote for, and is right now considering both candidates.
Angelina says that when they state their position on the refugee crisis and international justice issue, she might be able to make a decision:
“I have not decided on a candidate. I am waiting to see the commitments they will make on issues like international justice, refugees and how to address the needs of children in crisis around the world.”
Unlike most other celebrity endorsements, Jolie's has the influence of her extensive humanitarian work around the world, in her role as goodwill ambassador for the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees. Nevertheless, Angelina is still an actress, and a polarizing figure at that, and many will still lump her in with the rest of Hollywood as just another actress with an opinion.
