    "Don't Always" mix?

    How about "rarely" mix?

    Domestic Policy as well. Here's 61 more who supported Obama in 2012, the worst President of the United States. And NO, I'm not a right-wing nut bar. I voted for him in 2008, unfortunately.

    Mick chimes in about the NSA:

    Mick Jagger: The rock 'n roll superstar kept it short and sweet last night. He stated before a crowded Rolling Stones concert in Washington, DC last night, "I don't think President Obama is here tonight... But I'm sure he's listening in."

    Being a Star and being a celeb aren't the same thing. I really would call anyone named in the article a true "star". As for a successful "star" who was involved in foreign policy was Shirley Temple Black, may she rest in peace. She was the top box office draw in the 1930s and 1969-1992, she was US Rep to the UN, Chief of Protocol, Ambassador to Ghana and Ambassador to Czechoslovakia. Seems like two very successful careers to me. As for TPP and dolphins, nothing wrong with that. Since they sell the dolphins one way or another, seems reasonable to be subject to a trade treaty.
