Walking the Blue Carpet Line

Due to the WGA strike, you won't be seeing a lot red carpet glamour in Hollywood, but the recent blue carpet line by way of the Democratic debate at the Kodak Theatre brought out a bevvy of celebrities.

Much was made of the tone of the debates, (the kind of tone that comes from a "We're making history here" feeling) but almost as much was made of the number of celebrities and Hollywood power brokers that showed up to be in the audience. Sure, Senator John McCain got a boost from the California Governator Arnold Schwarzenegger, but it seemed like the rest of Hollywood sat in the Kodak Theater in L.A. basking in a blue glow.

Among those walking the blue carpet line was the guy who played "The Haitian" on Heroes, Jimmy Jean-Louis. You may remember, (that is, if he did not erase it!) that he's the one who had the mutant power to wipe out memories. One can only hope that the next president puts into action policies that wipe out the bad memories of the past seven years.
