Voters in many of the Super Tuesday states, particularly
on college campuses, shouldn't be surprised to see celebrities
such as Robert DeNiro, who appeared today with Obama at a New
Jersey rally, Kerry Washington, Usher, Chris Rock, Brendan
Routh, Kate Walsh, Kal Penn and Tate Donovan speaking on Obama's
behalf. Voters in California are getting phone calls from Ed Norton
and Alfre Woodard; caucus-goers in Colorado might hear from Forest
Whitaker. Enrique Marciano, who stars in CBS's Without a Trace,
is campaigning for Obama with Arizona Governor Janet Napolitano.
Minnesotans might be shocked to see Scarlett Johansson knocking
at their door.

Two celebrities stumped for U.S. Sen. Barack Obama,
D-Ill., at the Obama campaign office located at Laundry 101 on
West Gilman Street Thursday.
“Superman Returns” stars Brandon Routh and
Kal Penn shared how Obama has inspired them with a crowd of students
and community members gathered among laundry machines.
“This is not really politics we’re talking about,
this is an investment in my future,” Routh said.
“You may not like what everyone says, you may not
like every politician, but there are people who are doing good
things in this country.”
