Quote by Fred A. Allen
Hollywood is a place where people from Iowa mistake each other for stars.
This quote suggests that Hollywood, being the epicenter of the entertainment industry, often creates an environment where people can easily confuse ordinary individuals with celebrities. It highlights the tendency of those who are not accustomed to the glamour of the industry, like people from Iowa, to mistakenly identify someone as a famous star due to the overwhelming presence of actors and celebrities in Hollywood. It serves as a lighthearted commentary on the allure and star-struck atmosphere that can be found in this renowned city.
People who supported Obama felt like they formed a relationship, that they were being spoken to.

It makes people relate to him.
Woe betide him, and her too, when it comes to things of consequence, when they are placed in circumstances requiring fortitude and strength of mind, if she have not resolution enough to resist idle interference ... It is the worst evil of too yielding and indecisive a character, that no influence over it can be depended on. You are never sure of a good impression being durable; everybody may sway it. Let those who would be happy be firm.
