    Affleck attended the 2000, 2004 and 2008 Democratic National Conventions.  Affleck campaigned extensively for Gore and Kerry and other Congressional Democrats, even for Hillary when she ran for Senate.  Check out:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yRBJRlfM33I

    •  Perception is reality (0+ / 0-)

      He can be painted as not being a serious voice, just another celebrity candidate.  Can he connect with blue collar voters?  As I type this, I know these are the same things that were said about Obama, but if you recall, he go killed in the MA primary.

      •  Keeping in mind the guy they just elected... (0+ / 0-)

        ...showed his wang in Cosmo, I think you're overestimating the abilities of spinmeisters to paint someone with political abilities and a modicum of policy knowledge as an empty suit.

        •  Brown did not show his wang (0+ / 0-)

          Maybe there were more pictures that I didn't see, but the COSMO centerfold and all the available pictures that I have seen, showed his wang discretely covered.

      •  Yeah, and Obama was painted as an empty suit (0+ / 0-)

        with no experience. But when people watched and listened, they came to a different conclusion.

        Relax - the adults are in charge now.
