Actress Jessica Alba asks voters to pledge allegiance to Obama | WashingtonExaminer.com The Obama campaign has launched its For All campaign, encouraging supporters to take pictures of themselves with their hands on their hearts and a note explaining why they support President Obama. Actress Jessica Alba uses the Pledge of Allegiance as an example of the campaign in an email to supporters. Growing up, my classmates and I started every day with a ritual: Wed stand up, put our right hand over our hearts, and say the Pledge of Allegiance, explains Alba. To me, that gesture was a promise. A promise to be involved and engaged in this countrys future. A promise to work for liberty and justice and for affordable education, health care, and equality for all. Between the new flag and trying to force students to sign pledges to obama, we are watching the transformation into obamamerica right now.
