Eva Longoria - Eva Longoria Heads Hollywood's Leading Ladies At 2012 Dnc

"The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy's flipping burgers - she needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not." Brave words at the Democratic National Convention, there. Especially considering those words came from Longoria herself, The Telegraph reports today (September 7, 2012). Her speech may not have had quite the powerful appeal that Michelle Obama's had, earlier in the week, but Longoria did a pretty good job of highlighting to the American public that Mitt Romney's Republicans are only interested in protecting the rich.
Eva Longoria's Dnc appearance wasn't the only example of celebrities appealing to the public to vote for Barack Obama, last night, either. Scarlett Johansson and Kerry Washington all took to the stage to pledge their support for the US President's electoral campaign. 27 year-old Johansson spoke of the financial struggles that she and her family faced as a child, highlighting the importance of governmental support for families on low incomes: "My father barely made enough to get by" said Johansson. "We moved every year, and we finally settled in a housing development for lower middle income families. We went to public schools and depended on programmes for school transport and lunches, as did most of my friends."
Kerry Washington gave an equally stirring speech, saying "I'm here not just as an actress but as a woman, an African-American, a granddaughter of immigrants," said Washington. "A person who could not have afforded college without the help of student loans and as one of millions of volunteers working to re-elect President Obama!"
