Although actor Clint Eastwood's political involvement will forever be epitomized by his speech to a chair representing President Obama, Karl Rove's super PAC has called upon the Hollywood veteran to narrate a commercial that supports candidate Mitt Romney. (Of course, it's much harder to veer off track in a taped, scripted commercial.) The commercial will air in the swing states of Ohio, Iowa, Colorado, Florida, New Hampshire, Nevada and Virginia.
