The Associated Press knows when something should
be on its “Big Story” page...like another liberal celebrity who
still thinks Obama is the greatest. AP’s Mesfin Fekadu began:
“Barack Obama supporter James Taylor doesn't just think the U.S.
president is great — he believes Obama is the greatest of all-time.”
"I've been watching politics since Eisenhower and
Adlai Stevenson, when dinosaurs roamed the Earth, and Obama is
my favorite, favorite president," Taylor told AP on Wednesday.
"I am just thankful for every day that he's in office. I am so
proud that he represents my country and I think he represents
me — I think he represents the America that I know."
Taylor, 67, was last seen helping his pal John Kerry
apologize to the French in song after Obama blew off a march of
world leaders mourning the Charlie Hebdo attacks. The admiration
is mutual with Team Obama: He performed "America the Beautiful"
at Obama's second inauguration in 2013.

or female, gay or straight, Christian, Jewish, Muslim, atheist
— it doesn’t matter what these other connections are,” he said.
“Our country needs to come together and the question is, ‘Is this
public servant someone who will bring us together?’ And I think
James Taylor is backing Hillary
