Supermodels have the world on a string, but few people rush to their side for commentary on the modern political scene.
Heidi Klum’s recent chat with CNN’s own Piers Morgan helps explain why.
Klum, the lovely co-host of ‘Project Runway’ and one of the world’s most popular models, shared a key reason she became a U.S. citizen before the 2008 presidential elections. She wanted to sign up for the Hope and Change Express. Too bad she’s not very eloquent in expressing exactly why:
I’ve been here since ’94. I’ve been paying quite a few taxes in this city — in this country. And I felt that it would be right for me to, you know, vote for the next President. And I really, I don’t know, I liked him and I wanted him to win over the other person.
Klum is equally… vague regarding the first two-plus years of the guy she liked better than “the other person.”
Klum acknowledged that it hasn’t been easy [for Obama]: “I mean you can’t lay it all on one person to make things happen…,” she said. Klum also told Morgan: “…it’s always very tough to talk about politics, don’t you think? I mean, there’s so many things, if you get me started, I don’t stop. And how long is this show?”
Did Morgan really get her started on politics? It’s hard to tell.
