A Whitmore Sampler
Although he would become a fervent Obama supporter -- it was Whitmore who introduced Obama at a huge Universal Ampitheatre rally -- at first he wasn't sold on the Illinois Senator, who'd yet to announce his candidacy.
"Darling, he's really just the flavor of the week," he told his wife Noreen. "We've got pet rocks in America and hula hoops and then we forget [them] -- they're gone."
But once his wife got Whitmore to read one of Obama's books he was hooked on the man. Whitmore will talk politics and Hollywood with Greene, who also speaks to Noreen Nash Whitmore and takes calls. Tonight's show can be heard in Los Angeles at 9 p.m. on KTLK 1150 AM, and will be available as a Podcast and archival download.
