Question: Why do you think people should vote for Barack Obama?
Moby: I think we should vote for Barrack Obama for a lot of reasons; one, he is smart; two, he has a great voice. I mean, like nothing against John McCain, but he has a whiny little voice, you know, I admire his history of service, and he seems like a smart funny guy, but whenever he opens his mouth I cringe. And Barrack Obama has this deep stentorian voice so no matter what he says it sounds great. So, personally, I would rather spend four years listening to Barrack Obama than John McCain. I also think, of course I’m not the first person to say this, just having a president of mixed parentage, you know, Scandinavian and Kenyan, sends such a remarkable message to the rest of the world, and I think that in and of itself serves American interests better than just about anything else we can do because isolationism has not served us very well. You know, and we live in this global economy, and especially if we expect China and all these other nations to continue to sort of fund our debt, basically underwrite our debt, they have to like us, or at least it helps if they like us, especially on a manufacturing level as well, so I think Barrack Obama is just like a great ambassador for the United States.
