    Good for him, but it's not much of a political statement. I don't think anyone disagrees with the message that change is needed.

    And saying it's to encourage people to vote is laughable. If that was the case, he'd have worn them a week ago -- while people can still vote.

    It's an Adidas publicity thing I would imagine. When they send out a press release so that people will ask about it, Tmac just says what they told him to. ( I would guess.)

    Sounds alot like barack obama's campaign slogan...

    I just hate when athletes/actors get involved in politics. if they want to get involved, they should run for office like Arnold, etc.

    Change is intuitive, since theres a new president either way. The difference is, "Change" has been the slogan for one of the candidates.

    I'm with you. The polls close at 7:00. Advertising at a 7:30 tip isn't very effective to get out the vote.

    I hate when people rag on hollywood and sports figures for having a political belief and then turn around and name their babies after Reagan.

    what? i have no idea what you're getting at. anyway, people pay attention to athletes, so if they want to encourage people to be politically informed and vote, especially for president, then more power to them.

    It won't do much good encouraging people to vote after the deadline has past. This is for attention.
