The Huffington post has compiled a list of the Top 10 Celebrity supporters for each candidate running for the Democratic Nomination for President of the United States. While LiberalArtists agrees with most of the picks on selected by Huffington Post a few mediocre names are on the lists which shouldn't be (I mean, c'mon Perez Hilton?) and a few big name supporters do not appear at all (Will Smith for example) but because the list touches on celebrity endorsements of Politicians we feel it is worthy of discussion.
