The Bangor Daily News reported Saturday that Stephen King has endorsed Barack Obama for president:
"King’s supporting Sen. Barack Obama (D.-Illinois) among the Democratic presidential candidates.
"We need a big change," he said. "It’s an amazing thing to see the two frontrunners be a woman and a black man. Obama has the least baggage of the two and is willing to try new things. It wouldn’t be business as usual. Also it would do wonders for us in the world community to have a black man in the White House."
