Natalie Portman is good at politics? Let's see her opinion about the
next-President of the US.
The first, is for Hillary Clinton:
"A lot of the stuff people say about her, I hear it and my stomach falls
because it's so sexist. You ask people why they don't like her and it's because
her husband cheated on her! That was obviously not her choice. She's so much
more polished and experienced than anyone else. Last night, a friend, a social
worker in L.A. who works with underprivileged kids, was saying how these girls
who have never been interested in politics before are so excited that a woman
might be president. I mean, look how many women are in government…Hillary's one
of, what, [a handful of] female senators?"
She also share her words about the other candidates:
"I also like Obama. I even like McCain. I disagree with his war stance—which
is a really big deal—but I think he's a very moral person. I met him and Hillary
on the same day, actually, when I went to Washington with Finca [a nonprofit
that gives loans to businesswomen in developing countries]." (This
girl is looking for something positive in the blackballs.)
In the end, as a woman, she picks Hillary Clinton as her heroine.
"Hillary was by far the smartest person I
met that day. Just totally focused, and knew more about the issues than anyone
else, and was so able to go from one thing to the other."
