Wil Wheaton, former child star (Star Trek: The Next Generation, Stand By Me) and blogging pioneer, has officially come out in favor of candidate Barack Obama for the 2008 US Presidential election.
In a post from his temporary “In Exile” blog (it’s a long story. Wikipeida search it if you really want to know), Wheaton begins his endorsement blog post by saying “not that my endorsement means much of anything.”
He couldn’t be more wrong. Wheaton may not think that many people find his opinion “influential” but his Presidential endorsement made the front page of Digg.com tonight. Most of us bloggers know how valuable making the front make of Digg.com is. The front page of Digg is a web traffic gold mine.
Why Wil Wheaton Endorses Barack Obama
In Wheaton’s endorsement post, he goes on to say “I believe that Barack Obama is the best candidate running for president who can begin to repair the damage inflicted on my country by George W. Bush. I miss my country, and Barack Obama gives me hope that I can get it back.”
So in the grand scheme of things, what does Wil Wheaton‘s endorsement really mean for the American Presidential race? I think Digg.com user ShemDaimwood put it best with this comment “To the online community, Wil’s endorsement probably means more than Ted Kennedy’s.”
There’s still now word on who Captain Picard, aka Patrick Stewart, has decided to endorse. But to quote another Digg user, kete00, “…with Will Wheaton’s endorsement, Obama can set his phasers to victory!”
We will see what happens in November.
