Moore Asks Democrats To Be Like Celebrity-Minded Republicans
American director MICHAEL MOORE recently encouraged his fellow Democrats to take a leaf out of the Republicans' book and secure a celebrity as a future presidential candidate.
Moore, speaking at a lunch to celebrate his documentary FAHRENHEIT 9/11 picking up the NEW YORK FILM CRITICS award for Best Non-Fiction Film, aimed his campaigning comments at an audience including actress FAYE DUNAWAY, actor GRIFFIN DUNNE and WHEN HARRY MET SALLY writer NORA EPHRON.
And Moore believes the Democrats need a figurehead such as the Republican California Governor ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER.
He said, "Who's our Arnold? Republicans run people who are stars. When we run people who are stars - rock star BILL CLINTON, movie star JOHN KENNEDY - we win.
"Who wouldn't vote for CAROLINE KENNEDY? Who wouldn't vote for TOM HANKS?"06/01/2005 13:51
