Obama's Star Power: Senator Leahy and Fall Out Boy?

Obama's Star Power: Senator Leahy and Fall Out Boy?

What do you get when you cross Senator Patrick Leahy with rocker Pete Wentz? A very strange combo of endorsements for Barack Obama. Joining a star-studded list that includes Oprah and Scarlett Johansson, Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT), chairman of the judiciary committee, (a senatorial-equivalent rock star,) announced his endorsement of Obama today.

Next Tuesday, Fall Out Boy's Pete Wentz is hosting his own fund-raiser for Obama in his home state of Illinois. With guyliner or without, this rocker (who considers himself both "liberal," and "apolitical,") tossed his support to the candidate. Though according to MTV, Pete considers Obama a fall-back choice:

"To find a candidate that I completely agreed with, I'd have to run myself. And I'm not sure people would be ready for tax-free ice cream and 'Macho Man' Randy Savage as the secretary of state."

Who's the better endorsement?
