Lily Tomlin on Obama via Podcast

“I’m not going to give up on Obama in all respects. I can’t imagine how it is to be a politician, I don’t care how freshly you come to it. We don’t know what his situation is. It’s like people wanting everybody to come out. You can’t expect it of every person because you don’t know what they’re going through. You don’t know what their situation is, you don’t know what their level of courage is in that department. You try to give people the benefit of the doubt, especially when they’re coming from what appears to be a good place. I have every hope but change is really, really hard.”

–Lily Tomlin to Las Vegas’ The Strip Podcast, Nov. 8.
