Photos of Matt Damon, Alicia Silverstone, Kerry Washington at VoteFest '08 Obama Rally in Miami

Yes, Matt Damon Can Have This Effect on People

Alicia Silverstone looked mesmerized as Matt Damon took the stage to rally for Obama at VoteFest '08 in Miami Beach yesterday. Matt, Alicia, and Kerry Washington are touring multiple South Florida cities to promote early voting in the swing state. Matt said, "I took time off from acting until the end of the year to be with my family and enjoy our new daughter. But it is very important for me to do what I can to help the Obama campaign so people will go out and vote. We need change in this country and now is the time to be sure that happens." Matt may not be acting for a few more months, but he is not taking any time off from the various political matters he is so passionate about.

LittleMissM, I can raise my hand as a republican that DOES speak out when republican celebrities voice their opinions because to me it is WRONG no matter which side you are on. I can't see how any intelligent person would vote for McCain. The same could be said of Obama supporters you know.

Obama is an inspirational candidate, this is a historic election, and maybe people just can't help but do something and be involved. Geez yall'd be b*tching if celebs didn't care enough about current events and the country they live in.

Well that's pretty damn insulting. Oh, I don't know, maybe they have different political views than Obama, just off the top of my head. Sheesh.

And I believe celebrities have a right to voice their opinions. Usually its conservatives who get mad when celebrities talk about politics because the celebrities happen to have opposing beliefs.... well how come no one complains when republican celebrities talk? While I may dislike conservatives, they have a right to voice their opinions too as celebrities. Its a free country. I don't think its fair to say "they're celebrities....what do they know? leave politics for the politicians". Well the same could be said for regular people like you and me.

Someone making 10 million a film will not feel the hurt as much as someone making 250k. They just won't.

I'd take advantage of the platform. Whatever it takes, that's legal and honest of course, to get Obama elected :naughtyelves:. Anyway celebs are a part of the class that will be hit by higher taxes, let him rally and show his support for Obama and Obama's potential impact on the country regardless to how it affects him personally.

Again, like on every post about this, no on is saying they can't have an opinion. They just need to express it like the rest of us and not take advantage of their platform.

I don't know why people think celebrities can not have an opinion about politics. We are all citizens. I didn't knock Chuck Norris for backing Huckabe.

People shouldn't base their vote on opinions of a popular actor/performer.

Right there with ya little k, right there with ya. Part of his quote says "But it is very important for me to do what I can to help the Obama campaign so people will go out and vote. " He should have added "For Obama" to the end of that because you KNOW that's the only reason he's there, to get votes for Obie.
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 8 years
Why do they call it things like "vote fest" and the like, when they are really just Obama rallies? Why not call a duck a duck?

Matt's Obama fascination is a huge turn o-f-f! But Hollywood isn't thinking this year, I guess, led as always by Babs S. This year, character does not count...so neither does Matt:(
