Jamie Foxx For Obama: "We Need A Cool President"

Jamie Foxx is a big Barack Obama fan, and talked to Newsweek about it when he did a Q&A to push his Sirius radio show.

You took the show to the Democratic Convention. How was that?
We had a blast just being there and watching history. I was up there with all the serious journalists, which was cool for me because who would have thought?

What makes you such a big Obama supporter?
Oprah introduced me to him and I just loved how cool the brother is. We need a cool president. But I'm nervous. You never know how it may turn out. I will have a party if he wins, but a quiet party because we've got a lot of work to do once he gets in there.

What did you think about the reaction to Colin Powell supporting Obama?
Please. If that had been someone like me I'd understand because I'm going to always say "I'm voting for the brother!" But Colin Powell? If he had wanted to be down with the brothers he never would've been a Republican.
