John Mayer had a gadget in hand at last night's BlackBerry Storm launch party in LA. While he loves to show off his newest toys, he also recently blogged for the Huffington Post about politics. John wrote passionately about Sept. 11, how it affected his generation, and why he supports Barack Obama. Here's an excerpt:

"I believe the definition of the 'hope' that Barack Obama enthuses operates on the unspoken thesis that there has to be a polar opposite to the despair of 9/11. Because if we accept that there's not, the will to live becomes forever altered. To adults who will vote for him, Barack Obama represents a return to prosperity. To the youth, he represents an introduction to it."

While John was out celebrating the hottest new BlackBerry, Barack Obama had a big night on television. There are just a few days until the election, so maybe we'll see the singer heading to the polls with also politically active Jennifer Aniston.
