Why Shepard endorses Obama

October 30, 2012

I have finally articulated why I will vote for Barack Obama and why I’d urge others to do the same. I procrastinated because my feelings about Obama and the state of politics right now are complex. My writing for 90days90 reasons reflects my most constructive take on Obama and how we can move forward. Please take a look and share. ALSO use your voice and vote on
Nov. 6!

90 Days, 90 Reasons is an independent initiative unaffiliated with Barack Obama’s presidential campaign. 90 Days, 90 Reasons was conceived by two guys originally from Chicago, Dave Eggers and Jordan Kurland. In late July, they looked around and saw that many of Obama’s voters and donors from 2008 needed to be reminded of all he has accomplished, and all he will do if given another term. They asked a wide range of cultural figures to explain why they’re voting for Obama in 2012, in the hopes that this might re-inspire the grassroots army that got Obama elected in the first place. Every day, a new reason will be posted—in short, Twitter form, with a longer essay available here. Please spread the word.
