Streisand To Make Pitch For Democrats On 20/20

Barbra Streisand agreed to be interviewed by Barbara Walters on ABC's 20/20 on Nov. 3 on condition that she be asked about her support for Al Gore, Hillary Clinton (in the N.Y. senatorial race), and the Democratic platform, New York Post columnist Neal Travis reported today (Tuesday), citing an unnamed source. "Babs (Streisand) is enormously popular in Middle America, where the election will be decided," the source told Travis. "All those undecideds out there -- if they can hear one idol telling another what a great guy Gore is, you know it's going to swing a lot of votes."
