Daily Hollywood: Wednesday November 3

The elections are finally over! In California, voters elected Democrat candidates Jerry Brown, for governor, and Barbara Boxer, for senator. The House of Representative  also experienced a power shift as the Republicans gained majority.

The right to vote is a privilege that many take for granted, and celebrities always try to encourage their fans to vote. Here are some Election Day tweets:

Bette Midler: “Come on dems, now Here we go knock on doors and say hello Show some faith in O’s direction Gotta win the damned election”

Russell Simmons: “Why vote: ‘The price good men pay for indifference to public affairs is to be ruled by evil men.’-Plato”

Kourtney Kardashian: “It’s voting day! Get up, get out there, and VOTE.”

Jimmy Fallon: “I just voted. Vote today!!!”

Brody Jenner: “Just voted yes on prop 19!! Now you go do it!!”

Joan Rivers: “Yes America- I did vote before I came to London. Now have you? Get out and vote right now! And please send me results…”

President George W. Bush’s memoir “Decision Points” is coming out on Nov. 9, 2010. He discusses many different things in his book, like the war in Iraq, a DUI, and Dick Cheney, but interestingly, he describes the Kanye West insult as the “lowest point in office.”

West’s infamous insult against Bush was during a televised Hurricane Katrina relief concert. West claimed, "George Bush doesn't care about black people." He also said America is set up "to help the poor, the black people, the less well-off as slow as possible."

In his first TV interview since his presidency, Bush will discuss the book with Matt Lauer of NBC Today. The interview will air Nov.8, 2010 on “Matt Lauer Reports” and Bush will also appear on the Today show the next morning.

Bush explains, "I faced a lot of criticism as President. I didn't like hearing people claim that I lied about Iraq's weapons of mass destruction or cut taxes to benefit the rich. But the suggestion that I was racist because of the response to [Hurricane] Katrina represented an all-time low.”
