The 2012 Presidential election is not only important to those affected by unemployment; rather it's also a major topic revolving around young people in the world. President Obama recently unveiled a program that focuses on America's youth called, "Young America Effort."
To assist in this program, President Obama, who is running for re-election, enlisted 25 of entertainment's young stars, including "Glee's" Dianna Agron, in a secret meeting in Beverly Hills. Agron, about the meeting, posted a photo on Twitter along with the tweet, "Maybe the only man I truly get nervous around. Worth the early wakeup call. @BarackObama."
Although Agron does not formally come out with her support of Obama's campaign, posing with the president and being included in this effort indirectly puts her in a position that could influence voters, especially young ones that are fans of "Glee."
With the economy in its current state, every election is a hot spot for voters, despite what profession they currently reside in. This begs the question, as much as it could influence young voters, will showing support for one political side affect Agron's career outside the election?
There have been reports that Agron's character, Quinn Fabray, will not return to the hit FOX series. However, the show's creator, Ryan Murphy, told Vulture, "A lot of people have been writing Dianna [Agron]'s off the show... - they're not off the show."
If Agron does bolt from "Glee," will her support for the Democratic President hurt her career? Agron has had bit roles in movies such as "Burlesque" and "I Am Number Four," but this political move may put a fork in her career path as she is only scheduled to appear in "Paranormal Activity 4," which currently is post-production.
Agron is an avid supporter of gay rights and PETA. Adding support to one political side further distances her from the general public, a base that often times remembers a celebrity's extracurricular activities. Can you say Tom Cruise?
Hopefully, Agron's seemingly star power can overcome any criticism. One thing's for sure, young voters have to commend the actress for encouraging people to vote. However, commending a celebrity has nothing to do with showing up to watch them on television or in film. Seriously, Tom Cruise?
