ABC News’ Sunlen Miller reports: Dave Matthews, from the Dave Matthews Band, endorses Sen. Barack Obama, D-Ill., which should help wth the youth (and Virginia) vote.
Here’s a letter on his Web site:
I hope this finds you well. A question, a reflection, and an endorsement. Why is our country divided?Why has this division been growing?
Can we not all agree that we are a country that supports its families, that protects its citizens and respects its neighbors? A country that educates its children? Are we not a country that can lead by example, rather than by force? Is ours a government of the people, by the people, for the people?
I would like to think so. But I believe that corporate greed and its involvement in policymaking, along with political cronyism, have made it nearly impossible for the people to govern.
So, we fight amongst ourselves over the spin of political slogans and half truths. And so, we are divided. It is time for a change, and that is why I support Barack Obama for President.
