Elway to the rescue?

With time running out in the presidential campaign, former Denver Broncos great John Elway came off the bench Friday to try to lead one more victory drive ...

Aw heck, you know the football analogy. Finish it yourself.

The larger question is whether anyone will be swayed in John McCain’s favor because Elway endorsed him at a stop in Colorado.

For that matter, does anyone really care who Sylvester Stallone (McCain), or the Goo Goo Dolls (Obama) or Arlo Guthrie (Ron Paul) have endorsed for president?

A number of commentators and academics have raised questions in the past year about whether celebrity endorsements do anything but cause a brief flurry of publicity for the candidate.

However, when you’re trailing in the fourth quarter, having one of the best come-from-behind quarterbacks of all time on your side isn’t a bad idea.
