In past elections I see all the large media outlets, some unions and major politicians endorsing candidates.
Currently we have ice cream manufacturers, Hollywood personalities, music industry celebrities and Michael Moore "endorsing" candidates. Is the second list even significant? I've personally made my own decisions without caring about "endorsements". I'll listen to debates and discussions and take it all in, but the endorsement stuff seems to be more of an ego thing for the individual originating it.
Screw it; I'm officially nominating Al Bundy for POTUS this fall...................
Is that major politicians enough for you?
I think you may be missing some of the active endorsements, really.
Most of them are just trying to kiss up to who they think will be the future president.
