I think she’s doing this because she is hitching her “preference wagon” to his “race-wagon”, the whole, “I’m-in-an-oppressed-group-so-are-you-even-though-we-are-presidential-candidates-and -rock-stars” thing..yeah I know she is part mexican,
I really like that song “Diamonds and Rust” . Add to the Obama roster Joan Baez, 60’s hippie. My parents liked her as they were anti-war also. Anti-war, OK , great. Ron Paul wants to get out of Iraq . I read this yesterday in (letters to the ed) of the SF Chron. Now they have put it in Wiki. The line that gets me is
“feels like the responsible thing to do” (can even non-official Whites have “White Guilt”?)

On February 3, 2008, Baez wrote a letter to the editor at the San Francisco Chronicle endorsing Barack Obama in the 2008 U.S. presidential election. She noted that “Through all those years, I chose not to engage in party politics…At this time, however, changing that posture feels like the responsible thing to do. If anyone can navigate the contaminated waters of Washington, lift up the poor, and appeal to the rich to share their wealth, it is Sen. Barack Obama.”
