The Politics of Jewel

The singer shares her Capitol Hill experiences with the Politico’s Jeffrey Ressner, and she’s in the political entertainment camp that have parted ways with the Clintons.

Ressner writes, “The presidential campaign, she said, “has made me sick,” especially the tactics used by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton in her bid for the Democratic nomination. After visiting the Clinton White House and campaigning for Hillary Clinton in her Senate race in New York, Jewel recently turned sour on the Clintons for what she feels is “transparent spin” and “the worst of what politics is.”

“Though she hasn’t yet chosen a candidate to support, she’s “intrigued” by the “sincere” attributes of Sen. Barack Obama and is “interested in getting to know more” about Sen. John McCain.”

Ressner also has a few more details on the sequel to “An Inconvenient Truth,” and of the first screening of “Frost/Nixon.”
