can the star of yentil bring in any new votes? or more importantly, can she host a few high-priced dinners to bring in more $$ for the lil dog?

1. Are Streisand and Fonda enemies of the
Democratic Party now? I didn't get the memo.

2. nah, it's just some people think they're much more amusing
and witty than they are, and like taking shots they think are clever.

4. Both have supported liberal ideals and
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 08:45 AM by sufrommich
the Democratic party since they found their own political voices,going on over 40 years now,both have been mocked and taunted for it. It's hard for me to imagine why any Democrat would feel the need to join the GOP noise machine,no matter who their candidate.I also wonder what "has been" is designed to mean,too old to matter?

41. Clooney and Pitt have endorsed Obama
I assume they will endorse the nominee after the primary is over.

44. In the beginning they did...but they backed off going to his Oprah fundraiser..
and I think they've switched their support to Hillary and may not have been public about it, just yet.

6. She's Donated Tons Of Dough To The Democrats
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 08:53 AM by DemocratSinceBirth
By being a outspoken Democrat she has succeeded in alienating half the country...

She's not my cup of tea... But why do you mock her?


Or why do you mock Jane Fonda?

No celebrity stuck his or her neck out more during the Viet Nam War...




on edit- Oh, Magic Johnson endorsed Hillary...Is Magic a joke too?

7. Ms. Streisand has been extraordinarily generous to Democratic campaigns
for a long time.

I would count her as a highly valued ally.

Early in her career she had to shovel a lot of the "strong woman" bias that Sen. Clinton has faced. There's some common ground there in more than just politics.

Also, she's the greatest voice of our generation with an orchestra.

10. She's Not My Cup Of Tea Because I'm Not A Fan Generally Of That Genre
But she has a great set of pipes and for what's it worth she is a diva and cultural icon... The original poster tries to portray her as Debby Boone..

15. If the original poster can out-sing her, I'll accept the criticism.
If the original poster can not out sing her, I think your version of events is accurate.

Streisand is a genre-blasting icon, definitely.

One of the most dazzlingly instinctive musicians ever to walk into a recording studio.

And a bedrock-loyal Democrat to boot.

34. Hello, ilovesundhine, and please accept a belated welcome to DU.
I spent a couple years out in Arizona and like it a lot.

I hope to run into you some more on these boards.

What's the fucking problem with her endorsing someone?

11. well good for you
her endorsement is a detriment though. 2 of the right's favorite bogeymen paired up to bring out the base. if Michael Moore didn't have values, he'd be able to complete the triangle.

14. I Agree With You About The Utility Of Her Endorsement
But she is a diva and cultural icon...

I'd also doubt the utility of Michael Moore's endorsement in a general election but I wouldn't doubt his ability as great documentary film maker...

Ditto for Jane Fonda...

I don't see a need to mock them...

9. I will admit to liking Dennis Kucinich's version of "16 tons."
But he's no Streisand.

12. I Thought Babs Supported Obama And Threw A Party For Him Early On.....
that pissed off HRC. What kind of pressure did HRC put on Babs to get her endorsement?

Is Babs more influential than Oprah? Who will win this reality game of 'Celebrity Primary'?

Remember - Huckabee has Chuck Norris.

18. It's Not Fair To Streisand And Oprah To Pit Them Against Each Other...
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 09:15 AM by DemocratSinceBirth
Barbara Streisand is a great, great, great Democrat...She has raised more dough for Dems than anybody on this board...

To your question Oprah is more popular... And don't think Barbara's Bush* bashing and pro Democratic politics didn't cost her some popularity...

16. Here is Streisand's statement

"Madame President of the United States...it's an extraordinary thought. We truly are in a momentous time, where a woman's potential has no limitations," said Streisand. "Hillary Clinton has already proven to a generation of women that there are no limits for success. She is driven by her passion for public service and her belief in the enormous potential of our country. Smart, capable and strong in her convictions, Hillary has transcended the dictates of what is thought to be possible for our time."

"Hillary is a powerful voice for change as we find our country at an important crossroads. Under her leadership, our country will regain its respect within the global community. She will prioritize issues of global climate change, universal health care and rebuilding a strong economy. After 8 long years, the public will once again have faith in their government.

17. I think any Democrat would be genuinely proud to have her endorsement.
Edited on Wed Nov-28-07 09:10 AM by Old Crusoe
This quotation here of hers may be a valuable bookmark of the 2008 campaign. I'm for John Edwards but acknowledge many of the points Streisand makes here.

20. Streisand and Fonda are genuinely talented, always interesting, and often
breath-taking.

That they support the liberal tenets of the Democratic party is an added plus.

They link people to ideas in their role as entertainers.

And they do a damn good job of it.

42. The act of endorsement is not what makes them
celebutards. The belief that anyone gives half a shit about any opinion they have about anything is what makes them celebutards. Celebrity worship is no reason to vote.

36. Sean Penn and Willie Nelson have at least done some recent great art
I'll take Sean Penn and his wonderful acting and Willie Nelson with his fantastic talent and efforts over a has-been artistic dinosaur like Streisand.
