Affleck And Damon Speak Out For Obama

Hollywood stars BEN AFFLECK and MATT DAMON pledged their support for presidential wannabe BARACK OBAMA at a fundraising event in Miami, Florida on Saturday (02Aug08).
The pair was accompanied by their pregnant wives Jennifer Garner and Luciana Barroso at the gala, to raise money for the Democrat's push for the White House.
The foursome paid $1,000 (GBP500) each for tickets to the black tie event and Affleck, Garner and Damon all gave speeches.
A source tells People.com, "Jennifer Garner gave the first speech supporting Obama, and she was very witty, clever and funny. She was followed by her husband Ben, then Matt Damon. The men gave serious political speeches on how the country needs change."
Damon later explained his support for Obama, "Mostly because I don't like the path this country's on and if MCCain is elected we'll be continuing down that same path."
