If Matt Damon were to primary Barack Obama, would you vote for him?

It seems that Michael Moore, at an FDL online event, threw Matt Damon’s name out there as someone he would support as a third party candidate for President:

I think that [Matt Damon] has been very courageous in not caring about who he offends by saying the things that need to be said here, and if you want to win, the Republicans have certainly shown the way — that when you run someone who is popular, you win. Sometimes even when you run an actor, you win. And I guess I only throw his name out there because I’d like us to start thinking that way.

Interesting. Matt Damon is this guy:

I think [Obama]’s rolled over to Wall Street completely. The economy has huge problems. We still have all these banks that are too big to fail. They’re bigger and making more money than ever. Unemployment at 10 per cent? It’s terrible.

And this articulate son of a teacher:

So my question: Would you vote for Matt Damon if he decided to primary Barack Obama? (Note: I said “primary” him, not “3rd party” him.)

Your turn: weigh in if you wish.
