    The platform of a candidate is what most voters consider. But, the 'likeability' factor is also big. Clinton has it. Obama scores well in polls on that factor. Romney... meh. Nothing going on there. He comes off as a whiney Ken doll.

    It depends on the reputation of the person or persons, who endorse him; as well as, the candidate's reputation; If the people know he has their interest at heart and he has proven that by the goals he has accomplished.

    It depends on who is doing the endorsing ... I mean who would want an endorsement from Dubya? Now the GOP is one pathetic party ... only creditable endorsement would come from Senator McCain ... even though he made the Palin mistake ... he is the best leader the GOP have,

    Depends on the endorsement and whether or not the ticket/canidate is worth voting for in the first place. Some endorsement by the wishy-washy types are given out like candy while other endorsements are hard to earn.

    Depending on what or who the endorsement is. If it is Bill Clinton you have the best of the best for getting Dem votes. He is still a power house for Obama and the Dems Party.

    Is the the porn star crowd a big constituency? I suppose her wealth spends the same as the 1% crowd, and he's not turning down anyone's money, no matter how she earned it.

    Folks usually have decided by party ideology rather than endorsements when on their way to vote.

    I don't think people even think about platforms. I just think they vote for who they like. Bush's resume was total trash, his platform was vaporware, but his gift was he could make truly stupid people feel good about themselves. Nobody expected him to be such a complete waste.

    I hope the American people do their own investigation into a candidates positions and policies and make an intelligent decision. After seeing some of the support the wacko tea-partiers and extreme right-wingers have received, I worry though!

    It depends on who the endorser is but majority of Americans are going to vote for who they want regardless.

    If they do, then I endorse Barack Obama for a 2nd term as president. But most of you already know I support his re-election.

    Ie When taken in context with the photo, both Hilary and Bill Clinton have more than a few fans and followers and by publicly supporting the President they are effectively asking their supporters to vote for him.

    I agree with their philosophy - Obama has similar roots as the Clintons - community organizers/service...I dread what will happen to the country if Romney gets elected as well as more extreme right-wingers!
