ABSTRACT
The author offers insights on celebrity endorsements of U.S. presidential candidates. He sees this idea as a bit foolish. He believes that the idea that a celebrity translates into a political wisdom does not make sense to him. He indicates that celebrities have the right to speak up about any issue but the problem is that they receive more attention because of their fame.
