Snoopy for president?
Yes, if “Dog Whisperer” Cesar Millan gets his way. The cartoon Beagle is “the second-coolest dog on the planet. The first is [Millan’s dog] Daddy! We need a balanced pack leader,” according to Millan.
Millan was among several dozen celebrities to tape lighthearted online PSAs touting the new Peanuts website, where visitors can vote for Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, or Sally for president. Visitors click through to Rockthevote.com to view the PSAs, and to learn more about the real election.
Several celebrities taped their PSAs between interviews during the celebration of the 100th episode of “Dog Whisperer.” Virginia Madsen, who brought her dog Spike to the Los Angeles bash, entered a vote for “Sally – because she’ll give us school vacations permanently!”
Lucy proved to be popular with several female stars, including actress Sharon Gless, who noted approvingly that Lucy “will be tough on … everything.”
British “Daily Show” correspondent John Oliver said he was excited to vote in an American election for a change. “You can vote for an actual dog,” Oliver says. “How bad can that be?”
