LITTLE ROCK No fewer than three stars of 80s sitcom “Cheers” were campaigning for the presidential race yesterday.



Ted Danson was here to campaign for Sen. Barack Obama alongside Sen. Hillary Clinton. He’s best known for his role as Boston bar owner Sam Malone.


Here’s some video I shot of Danson and wife Mary Steenburgen:





Also on the trail were Kelsey Grammer and John Ratzenberger, campaigning in Nevada on behalf of Republican nominee Sen. John McCain.


Grammer, who played Frasier Crane, and Ratzenberger, who played postman Cliff Clavin, appeared in Henderson and Las Vegas.


The local NBC station has some video (around 1 minute into report) of the Cheers stars making phone calls.





No word yet on who George Wendt, who played Norm, is backing for the Nov. 4 contest.


BBlog readers may remember during the Iowa caucus, stars of “West Wing” were similarly divided.
