"Honestly, I think we should just trust our president in every decision he makes and should just support that, you know, and be faithful in what happens."
--Britney Spears, September 3, 2003, answering this question: "A lot of entertainers have come out against the war in Iraq. Have you?"
"So what should I think about [the war in Libya]? If it had been my call, I wouldn't have gone into Libya. But the reason I voted for Obama in 2008 is because I trust his judgment. And not in any merely abstract way, either: I mean that if he and I were in a room and disagreed about some issue on which I had any doubt at all, I'd literally trust his judgment over my own. I think he's smarter than me, better informed, better able to understand the consequences of his actions, and more farsighted."
--Kevin Drum, Friday, in Mother Jones
