Petition Drive Under Way to Have the Most Beloved of TV Actresses Introduce Obama at Democratic Convention. Would She Do It? Is She Even a Democrat? Will She Be Asked?

Fans of a popular TV actress have started a petition drive to get her a new gig: introducing President Barack Obama at the Democratic National Convention, reports TheWrap.com.

The actress is "Hot in Cleveland" star Betty White.

The petition argues that White would appeal to older Americans — countering Clint Eastwood’s performance at the Republican National Convention on Thursday.

"Clint Eastwood, the Republicans’ ‘mystery guest’ at the RNC, gave a bad name to older Americans everywhere with his absurd and awkward-to-watch introduction of Governor Romney," the petition states.

An earlier online petition involving White was a success, with the actress securing a hosting gig on "Saturday Night Live" after a 2010 online petition.

  1. Part of Betty White’s success is that she has stayed away from all of the political BS in Hollywood. Why would she ruin that now?
