John Mayer Endorses Obama

Yet another celebrity is stepping up and endorsing Democratic nominee Barack Obama.

John Mayer just posted a blog on the Huffington Post website about how he plans on endorsing Obama because he "gives me the feeling that I could be alive to witness one of the most brilliant upturns in a country's history."

Here's what John blogged about:

"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.

"That's why hope is a worthwhile commodity," he adds. "To those who question whether hope is a tangible product worth building a campaign around, I'd say take a look at despair and how powerful that has been in reshaping how people think and live.

"To adults who will vote for him, Barack Obama represents a return to prosperity," he writes. "To the youth, he represents an introduction to it."

You can read the entire blog on their website, it's kinda lengthy. Elections are right around the corner so celebs are doing their best to encourage young voters, which is always great in our book!
