Obama-Clinton Debate a Hot Ticket For Celebrities

by at . Comments

Last night's Democratic presidential debate in L.A. between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was notable for several reasons:

  • Nobody started crying during it
  • There was actually a discussion of issues
  • A large number of stars were in the audience

Forget the Oscars or Grammy Awards - they should have had a red carpet for this thing! Just a few of the many celebrities on hand:

Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio, Pierce Brosnan, Diane Keaton, Stevie Wonder, former Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington, Bradley Whitford of The West Wing, and America Ferrera (with fiance/non-fiance Ryan Piers Williams).

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk health care and foreign policy.

Barack Obama certainly has his share of celebrity support (Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson), but like the nation's voters so far, the crowd on hand last night seemed relatively split between the two Democrats.

America Ferrera has even teamed with Chelsea Clinton and has actually been knocking on doors for their fave candidate. We mean Hillary Clinton.
