I’m sure it’s no shock I’m a registered Democrat, and I’m really having a hard time deciding who I’m going to vote for come March 4. It’s an interesting (and pretty thrilling, really) field of candidates. American Apparel decided to weigh in on my choice via email this morning:

Four decades ago, the chairman of General Motors proclaimed:
“What’s good for GM is good for America.” Today we’re saying,
“What’s good for American Apparel is good for America.”

We urge voters to consider Obama on the Democratic side.

We urge voters to consider McCain on the Republican side.

Why? Because of their honesty on the issue of immigration, the most significant civil rights concern the country has faced in
50 years.

Why Not Clinton?

We appreciate Senator Clinton‘s campaign on many fronts, but when it comes to the issue of immigration she has not shown the same strength and conviction as Obama. This was clear during last week’s California debate. While he supports driver’s licenses for undocumented workers, she is opposed “at this time.” Tell that to a mother of three in East L.A. driving her children to school every day. Obama has also pledged to accomplish immigration reform in his first year; Clinton has not made such a commitment. Immigration is the most critical issue that faces the United States, California, and Los Angeles today—we appreciate the Obama campaign’s clear voice on it. We also applaud his refusal to scapegoat immigrants for political gain, as some other candidates have.
