You would be surprised to learn that of all cities, New Orleans was the one to boo Madonna for her Barack Obama endorsement.
Despite harsh criticisms from the city on how then Republican President George W. Bush handled the Hurricane Katrina disaster back in 2005, they weren’t that excited about a president from a different political party.

Apparently, many of the younger voters are disappointed to see that the presidential candidate who pushed for change still conformed just as much as the average politician…
