*The Democratic National Convention is on fire!
Bill Clinton showed all of his political finesses and swag (you gotta admit it) to move the crowd and drive voters into the booth in November.
He really got people out of their seats, but once the Commander-in-Chief hit the stage and Clinton bowed before him…it was a done deal.
But now, it’s time for the President to speak for himself and there has been a major push for Betty White to bring him out.
She may not give a big Steve Harvey “show ya love” type intro, but she’ll use her sharp wit to bring down the house. She’s been in the joke game much longer than Clint Eastwood.

White says in this year’s election, she likes what Obama has done and “how he represents us.”
Her comments come after Hollywood turned out at George Clooney’s home to raise $15 million for Obama’s re-election, a record for a single fundraiser, reports the Associated Press.
*Move over Tyler Perry, Betty White is taking the lead.
The 90-year-old queen of comedy is still the most appealing star according to the latest polls. She won the ‘audience appeal’ award of 2011 while Tyler Perry suffered a setback recently in a celebrity poll, according to the Chicago Tribune.

White was has been on top of the popular list for two years in the row. Perry, however, suffered with a loss in popularity, down 14 points.
“He declined from a very high level. He was very popular in 2010,” said Randy Parker, a spokesman for E-Poll, which found only 20 percent of respondents like Perry a lot. White, by contrast, had 53 percent say they liked her very much.
Perry’s ‘E-score’ was 77 out of 100. Reasons for the drop could include a dying appreciation for his art that in some opinions demean Black people.
But he seems to be maintaining a strong fan base with strong turn out at the box office.
