A prime time plug Thursday night for the joy of voting for Barack Obama. “I’m really into this. You know, elections and voting, it really means a lot to me. I mean, casting my ballot for Obama in ‘08 was one of the most meaningful things I’ve ever done,” enthused “Jasmine Trussell,” played by Joy Bryant, on Parenthood, the NBC drama about the multi-generational “Braverman” family in suburban San Francisco.

At the time of her pronouncement, “Trussell” was handing out literature on behalf of sister-in-law “Kristina Braverman,” a candidate for Mayor of Berkeley.

“Trussell,” who is black, continued: “You know, like thinking about how far we’ve come, and that I helped to elect the first black President. I mean, I never thought that would happen in my lifetime. I mean, I know you can’t really relate to that.”
