article imageClint Eastwood campaigns for Romney but daughter picks Obama

By Leo Reyes
Oct 21, 2012 in Politics
Popular actor Clint Eastwood has been campaigning for Republican Party candidate Mitt Romney but his 19-year-old daughter Francesca said she will vote for Obama.
At the recent Republican National Convention, Eastwood gave a compelling speech in support of his candidate in the party and while many have been influenced by his empty chair dialogue, her daughter did not believe her father's candidate is the better option when she casts her vote in a few days.
Asked by TMZ about her thoughts on her father's support for Romney, Fracesca said she respects her father's choice but she's not voting the same man.
"I happen to not be voting for the same man. But I love that [my dad] stands up for what he believes in."
Eastwood's "empty chair" speech at the convention has become a hit on social networking sites and many observers believe it has overshadowed Romney's own speech.
"The address started an internet craze known as 'Eastwooding' where thousands of pictures of people pointing at all sorts of empty chairs were uploaded on the internet," the dailymail.co.uk writes.
'If somebody's dumb enough to ask me to go to a political convention and say something, they're gonna have to take what they get,' Eastwood said in an interview with Extra.
'People loved it or hated it and that’s fine,' he added. 'That's what it was supposed to be.'
While Romney had Eastwood as his poll drum beater, Obama is getting the support of two of film industry's pillars as director Steven Spielberg and his CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg donated a sizable sum to Obama's campaign kit in support of his reelection bid.
Obama and Romney are running neck and neck in the final stretch of the current election campaign.
