It's time for Tiger Woods to follow Oprah into Presidential politics
With Oprah throwing her weight behind Barack Obama, Will Smith practically declaring he’s willing to endorse any one who will have him, and Sean Penn going … well, crazy Sean Penn, there’s only one thing missing from this presidential race.
When is the best golfer in history, the top athlete on the planet really (with apologies to Roger Federer), going to stick even a little toe into world affairs.
Tiger has been around long enough, dominated more than consistently enough, to be comfortable stepping into the fray. I don’t want to hear anything about Woods having to worry about his endorsements and not offending anyone. Tiger’s bullet proof when it comes to racking in big corporate bucks - or big Dubai bucks.
Besides, Tiger’s shown he’s not afraid to offend. See his rightful blast of soccer.
It’s time for Tiger to use his influence for something besides making himself crazy money, putting his name on junior golf academies and slapping down big-mouthed fools like Woody Austin.
In a time when no one can agree on anything, almost everyone seems to concede that the 2008 Presidential Election is going to be the most important election of this era.
It doesn’t matter which side or which candidate Tiger chooses to back. Personally, I’d think it’d be hilarious (and true to much of his actions) if he endorsed a Republican. Giuliani seems like a Tiger choice (Rudy certainly has that overbearing Steve Williams view on security, he’d probably slap the fan who’s camera he yanked).
It would be fine if Tiger endorsed some obscure Green Party candidate though. Does the Green Party even have a candidate this time?
Heck, Tiger could stay out of the whole fray and just urge young 20-something golfers to vote.
Just do it. Something. Anything.
