If you have ever read TSM you know how much I love Betty White. From her role as the delicious Sue Ann Nivens on the Mary Tyler Moore Show to her current role as Elka Ostrovsky on Hot in Cleveland, Betty has won the hearts of many. I have also loved her for supporting marriage equality–a matter of civil rights.
While Betty White typically steers clear of politics, yesterday she publicly endorsed President Obama, saying: how she “very, very much favors” President Barack Obama in this election. White went on to say how much she appreciates “how he represents us.” While I try not to get caught up in the lives of celebritiess, I so appreciate and respect the 90 year old Betty White for supporting a President who has a wonderful reputation globally and has the integrity to support and push forward civil rights; these qualities were severely lacking in W. In fact, W managed to work hard against civil rights and made the US look like global bullies–what does it say that Romney has said he is even more conservative than W? Well done, Betty White!
