Hollywood star announced as Obama campaign national co-chair

(CNN) - The Obama campaign announced its national co-chairs Wednesday, and one Hollywood star made the list. "Desperate Housewives" actress Eva Longoria will be one of the 35 national leaders of the campaign.

The star, who has visited the White House on several occasions and been an active supporter of President Barack Obama, joins a group that includes mostly politicians and business leaders.

    I’d much rather watch a television program called “women who have overcome adversity and built successful careers” without acting like ridiculous immature children in their late 30s and early 40s; but that’s just me. Add ‘Sex and the City’ to that dung pile of worthless crap too.
    I support the President and the list of other leaders is impressive.

    Perhaps instead of exacerbating America`s pre_occupation with a celebrity culture, CNN might discuss the other 34 co-chairs.
