Novelist Anne Rice, who returned to her Roman Catholic roots in ’96 after years as an atheist, and is working on a trilogy of novels about the life of Jesus Christ (the first, Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt has been published, the second comes this March), posted this video to YouTube endorsing a Clinton/Obama ticket.
David Kuo of the Huffington Post writes: “This video isn’t just the video of a famed female novelist exulting in Sen. Clinton’s win. It is also the voice of a woman from a generation that grew up in a world where people sneered at the thought of a female president. It is the voice of a woman like all those women who turned out in New Hampshire to vote for Sen. Clinton.”
Here’s a little factoid, for some of you newer readers. Anne Rice once left a comment on Towleroad, back in 2004 on the 4th of July, when her son, the novelist Christopher, was filling in for me while I was taking a week off over the summer. You can read it here.
