Do celebrity endorsements make much of a difference in elections? Barack Obama’s assistance from the unelected queen of the world, Oprah Winfrey, suggests maybe not, at least not in the way you’d expect. A poll found that one in three young New Hampshire women were less likely to vote for the clean, smart and articulate Obama because of the Oprah endorsement. One –sixth of women over age 65 said their opinion of the senator diminished as a result of Ms. Winfrey’s support.

Sheriff Joe's endorsement will matter in this race. It basically says Mitt is the candidate of choice for those who are pro-American.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was there to back Mitt Romney. Romney’s a great guy, a great businessman, a great organizer, he told anyone who would listen, and will surround himself with good people who’ll get the job done.

Unlike Chuck Norris, Joe Arpaio doesn’t play a tough law and order guy on TV. He really is a tough law and order guy. In the Iowa caucuses, where a relatively few votes can be determinative, my guess is his Romney endorsement will prove crucial.
Every single republican running for president would love to have this endorsement.

No big surprise with this one, John.

Of all of the "biggees" running, Mitt Romney is probably the strongest in the anti-illegal area.

If he does win the nomination, maybe he'll choose either Duncan Hunter or Tom Tancredo as his running mate.

Absolutely . . . too many Americans are fed up with the lack of respect for the laws of the land.
