At a fundraiser in Idaho, famous actor-director-producer Clint Eastwood showed up to support presumed Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney. Eastwood, a Republican, also supported President Obama's republican rival John McCain in the 2008 Presidential Elections.
The 82-year-old Academy Award winning director showed up to a Romney fund-raiser in Sun Valley, Idaho, on Friday night, telling the media that he believes that "the country needs a boost," (www.chicagotribube.com), which only the Governor of Massachusetts was able to provide.

There has been some speculation on Eastwood's choice for president, when he appeared in a Super Bawl commercial saying "it's half-time America," leading many to believe he was referring to Obama's quote on the auto-industry, thus suggesting his support for Obama. Later, he clarified that his cameo was unrelated to Obama.
The 2012 Presidential Elections is bringing in Hollywood endorsements for both candidates. The Obama re-election campaign has already received fund-raiser dinners hosted by famous talk-show host Oprah Winfrey and "Sex & the City" star Sarah Jessica Parker along with Vogue editor Anna Wintour. In May, George Clooney hosted a $15 million fund-raiser dinner for the President. Other celebrities such as Robert Downey Jr., Mariah Carey, Billy Crystal, Ann Hathaway, Tom Hanks, Sean Penn, Whoopie Golgberg, Leonardo DiCaprio and Salma Hayek et al have lended their support to him.
Although most of Hollywood is known to traditionally support democratic candidates, Romney has managed to bag his share of Hollywood support as well. Stars such as Jon Voight, Jerry Bruckheimer, Jeff Foxworthy and Donald Trump et al have all voiced support for the Massachusetts Governor.
