Next up to jump in the political race is Snoop Lion, formerly known as Snoop Dogg. It may not be the endorsement that tips the scales in the upcoming presidential election, but President Obama received a profane yet well-reasoned endorsement from Snoop Lion, at the Toronto International Film Festival.
