Actor Duvall Endorses Rudy

Hmm. I hope I can forget that while I enjoy his acting. It will be tough. Then again, Frasier is a favorite of ours here at SoonerThought–and Kelsey Grammer is a huge Repub. That’s America.

Republican Debate Primer - The Fix
Seeking to blunt the star power of soon-to-be presidential candidate Fred Thompson, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani is set to announce that actor Robert Duvall has endorsed him in the 2008 presidential race.

Duvall, an Academy Award winner perhaps best known for his portrayal of Tom Hagen in the “Godfather” movies, is not only endorsing Giuliani but will also host a fundraiser later this month at his Virginia home for the former mayor.

“I don’t normally get involved in politics, but I think the stakes are too high this election,” Duvall said. “Rudy has consistently proven he’s ready to confront tough challenges.”

The Duvall endorsement comes just hours before Thompson is set to enter the race in an appearance on “The Tonight Show.” Thompson has used his celebrity status — and the name identification that goes with it — to catapult himself into the top tier of candidates, which is led by Giuliani. Within Thompson will be a formally announced candidate and will have to prove whether there is any steak behind the sizzle.

All of the other Republican candidates, except for Thompson, are gathered in New Hampshire tonight for another debate hosted by Fox News Channel.
