Could Angelina Jolie be voting for Barack Obama this fall?
"Obama is fighting for international justice, he wants to intervene militarily in genocides abroad, and he wants to close down Guantanamo Bay," she tells the German edition of Vanity Fair. "They are things which could move me to vote for him, not his roots." Still, Jolie - whose father, Jon Voight, has endorsed John McCain - says just because Obama would be a good example for her family isn't "reason enough to vote for him."
Despite living across the world (she flew back to Nice, France, this week), Jolie says, "I am very proud of being American, and all my children have got American passports.
"For me, our family is just what America is - a melting pot, a mixture of many different races and nations," she says. "My children should be proud of their Asian and African roots, but that in no way means [is] a lack of respect for the fact that they and their parents are Americans." source
