Does This Win Texas?

Emmitt Smith was with Sen. Obama.

Former Dallas Cowboys football player and "Dancing With the Stars" champion Emmitt Smith gave Obama a rousing introduction, but it was Obama who heaped the most praise on his twinkle-toed supporter.


"Emmitt, what can't you do?" Obama asked as he turned towards the charismatic star. "You haven't found anything yet. Unbelieveable."

"I'm just glad he's not running for president," Obama joked.

Those of us who are Redskins fans may moan and groan, but Emmitt's career and the Super Bowl victories he helped bring in go over great in Texas.
