Good morning, Floooriiiida



Forrest_whitaker180 Actor, producer and director Forest Whitaker, who had a role in Good Morning Vietnam (and won an Academy Award for The Last King of Scotland), is coming to Florida tomorrow and Saturday on behalf of the Obama campaign to encourage college students to register to vote.

Whitaker and his wife will head to Edward Waters College in Jacksonville and then visit the University of Florida to watch the first presidential debate (wishful thinking?). On Saturday morning, the Whitakers will kick off a canvassing effort in Orlando and stop in Lakeland and Tampa to promote voter registration.
