Stella from NYC

I'm member of the UAW. Considering the alternatives, Obama is the best candidate for the working class and - weak as it is - his support is the only support we have. I will continue to endorse him.

When faced with an endorsement I think of the advertisements in which various well-known people hawked cigarettes.

That has made me endorsement-proof.
