Elton and Hillary: One Night Only

Next month, shortly before I am due to see him in Orange County, Sir Elton John is doing a solo show at Radio City Music Hall in New York City, as a fundraiser for Hillary Clinton.

I guess it's better than a fundraiser for John McCain, but not by much. Given that Hillary's attacks on Obama have gone to a point where she considers McCain to be a better presidential material than Obama (another example of Democrats eating their own, after Zell Miller and Joe Lieberman), Elton's high-profile support will polarize the Democrats even further. Besides, the last time I checked, despite a residence in Atlanta, Elton was still British, with primary residence in London. He shouldn't be politicking in the US.

I am disappointed, to say the least.
