Vanessa Williams Oozes Election Is a 'No-Lose Situation' Between Barack and Hillary

Barbara Walters was interviewing ABC "Ugly Betty" star Vanessa Williams in her pre-Oscar show last night and after discussing how she grew up as an overachiever because of her race, she asked:

WALTERS: Does the fact that Barack Obama is running for president have special meaning to you?

WILLIAMS: Uh, I'm very proud. I think it's such an exciting time, um, not only for Barack, but also for Hillary. I live in Chappaqua. She's my neighbor. The fact that she might be able to be the first female president – It's a no-lose situation, and I'm really, really excited that it's happening at this point.

The actress has apparently donated to Hillary in the past (and to Wesley Clark).
