–Actor Rob Lowe, who played Democratic Deputy White House communications director Sam Seaborn on “The West Wing” and Republican Sen. Robert McCallister on “Brothers & Sisters,” in an interview with the New York Times Magazine.
When asked about comparing political loyalty to recreational drug use, Lowe said both were “highly overrated,” before adding later, “My thing is personal freedoms, freedoms for the individual to love whom they want, do with what they want. In fact, I want the government out of almost everything.” In 2009 Lowe told The Guardian that he was once “a really, really liberal Democrat” who would later grow into “an independent moderate.”
