Actress/Singer Alicia Witt Sticks with Obama Who Gave Her 'Passion' for America
That gave her a 'passion' for the U.S. and it 'still gives me chills even though the darkness has sort of overcome our country again.'
The paper's August 18 'Yeas & Nays' item, 'Witt performs at W, votes for O,' quoted her as saying 'I would vote for Obama over Romney, but I think there are worse candidates over Romney.'
The actress who starred on Law & Order: Criminal Intent during its 2007 season and had a recurring role on NBC/DirecTV's Friday Night Lights, and who was in town to play piano and sing at the W hotel (her My Space page), recalled her time at the 2009 inaugural:
It was an amazing time to be in the capital, that's for sure. I have never experienced in my life anything like the swarms of people and the passion that I felt for the country. The diversity, people from all over the country, all ages and money groups - it was just astonishing and overwhelming and still gives me chills even though the darkness has sort of overcome our country again.
