    Video Clip: The Young and the Restless Stars Weigh in On Election!

    Tuesday, November 04 2008

    While in France, during a panel-type interview, cast members from The Young and the Restless revealed their thoughts on the U.S. Presidential Election.

    Although much of the interview is in French, Soaps.com can tell you that basically, Eric Braeden (Victor Newman) pledged his support for Barack Obama, which was seconded by Sharon Case (Sharon Abbott). Eileen Davidson (Ashley Abbott) agreed with that, but added that she actually had favored Hilary Clinton, and Michelle Stafford (Phyllis Newman) noted that she hadn't quite made up her mind (this was the week of October 6), as there were issues to consider with each of the candidates.

    Check out the video!

    get over it. if it would have been the republician candidates that they were endorsing you would have nothing to say about who they chose to vote for. it is their right to say who they are voting for just like you just voiced you opinion that you are a mccain supporter. you must care because you mad a angry comment about this. and maybe no one said they were voting for mccain that's why they did not print who was voting for mccain. everyone always think that nothing is fair when it is not going their way. just get out and vote for who you want to vote for and stop thinking that it is unfair for others to voice their oopinions on who they want to vote for. i know many rebublicians who are voting democrat this year because they are fed up with the mess that the rebublicians have made in the last eight years includinig me. yes i am a rebuclician voting democrat this year. we need a change in this country and i do not see mccain doing what we need done. so thanks to the y&r crew for not being afraid to voice their oopinion.

    Anyone who has made a decision about who to vote for has a right to endorse their candidate and give their reasons. The stars of Y&R are no different. At least one hadn't made up their mind yet, and many others weren't represented at this interview. It's just more information, and that is always good.

    P.S. I'm Canadian - so I don't have a vote in this election.

    I don't watch Y&R for the politics and I could care less who they vote for. I am a huge Y&R fan but I don't think this is the place for it. Yes everybody has a right to support who they want but this page is for Y&R SOAP OPERA news not the election and I'm really sick of everything being turned into stuff it's not.

    Believe you me if your casting your vote because your favorite star on Y&R is voting for that person you should stay home and not vote at all. JMHO!!!

    Can we all just get along? Each of us has a freedom of expression, and our preference or choice of a candidate shouldn’t sway, anyone else’s minds as to whom to vote for.

    Maybe, Skinnyminny1, that's because there are not many voting for (correct spelling) McCain.

    Go Obama!

    Adam has committed fraud with Jack, but we all know they get by with it again. Bring Victor back soon. He's the power behind this show. Nicki was really brave to put Ashley back in Victor's life. Let's hope Ash will tell him the truth about Nicki. Please don't let Nick get back with Sharon. She's not woman enough for him!!

    Keep the politics out of this. Enough is enough!!

    I don't get why people who get paid for speaking words that other people have written for them think that they are important enough to feel that their views will have an impact. Stick with entertainment, folks. That is what we pay you for, through the sponsors. And you probably get paid too much; just give me a nickel each time one of you speaks about politics!
