Don’t Blame Me, I Voted For Robert Ritchie


Would President Jed Bartlett of The West Wing call for Musharraf’s removal from power and an end of all U.S. aid to Pakistan?

Apparently so, as Martin Sheen will be joining Bill Richardson on the campaign trail.

SANTA FE, NM– Actor and activist Martin Sheen today officially endorsed New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson for President. He will campaign in Iowa with Richardson on Sunday, December 30 and Monday, December 31, during the final days before the state’s Democratic caucuses.

Well-known for his portrayals of iconic fictional and real-life Presidents on television, Sheen is also a respected and energetic activist for a number of humanitarian causes.

“Bill Richardson has the proven record of success and the real-world experience that this country needs in our next President: he is ready for prime time,” Sheen said. “In this, the most important Presidential election of our time, with so much on the line, I believe that Bill Richardson is the only one who can create the change that we so desperately need to restore America’s standing in the world and to get our country back on the right path at home.”
