Forest Whitaker to Iowa City for Obama 10/6

Forest Whitaker to Iowa City for Obama 10/6

They won't be able to introduce him as The Next President Of The United States, but they can call him The Last King Of Scotland.

Forest Whitaker, Oscar's reigning Best Actor for his role as dictator Idi Amin in The Last King Of Scotland, is the Barack Obama campaign's surrogate speaker at the Oct. 6 Johnson County Democrats' barbecue.

The Clinton, Dodd, Edwards, and Richardson campaigns are sending their candidates. But Obama, perhaps sticking with a publicly stated strategy of steering away from multi-candidate events, is insted flying solo for a two day Johnson County visit Oct. 2 and 3. Obama will be in South Carolina on Oct. 6.
