Pop music icon Cyndi Lauper has become the latest in a series of celebrities throwing support behind Senator Barack Obama’s campaign for the White House.

In a Friday afternoon entry, entitled “Hope,” posted on her Official Myspace Blog, Cyndi says: I believe we are at a crossroads and the next ten years will determine the future of this country. Like I said from the stage, this is not voting for the American Idol, it is much more important, this is voting for the American President. And now that I’m home again, and off stage, I wonder, will we become the country that respects the diversity that is our backbone or will we continue down this path of the few ruling the many? I wonder to myself are we gonna make that change in a big way and when I think about it I believe that the change can happen in the form of Senator Barack Obamcyndi-lauper
