Whoopi Goldberg: I Was For Obama, But Now I'm For Hillary

CINCINNATI (TDB) -- The Clinton campaign is pushing the news today -- along with a YouTUBE clip -- of Whoopi Goldberg saying she's now supporting the New York senator. Obviously, they are makin' whoopee. Still, Goldberg ain't the Big O. Oprah. Here's how Clinton spokesman Howard Wolfson spins the comic actor's change of heart:

"I've Switched to Hillary: On Wednesday on "The View," former Sen. Obama supporter Whoopi Goldberg announced that she voted for Hillary. On Thursday, the video of Whoopi's announcement was YouTube's single most watched news and politics clip. More than 200,000 people watched Whoopi explain that Hillary was the first candidate to propose taking tax breaks away from companies that ship jobs overseas. Watch."

  1. I lost a lot of respect for Whoopi when she became a "one issue" type of person... I think it is ridiculous for her to change her vote because she claimed she would vote for whoever FIRST talked about cutting tax incentives for companies that have overseas investments. Give me a break! Shouldn't her vote be based on more than just that?
    Whoopi is a great comedian, but her rationale for her vote is a joke.
