Magic Johnson says he supports Hillary Clinton because the lady is a champ.  Barack Obama, he implies, is not. 

"You don't want somebody in there that is young or a rookie at politics," said the former Los Angeles Lakers star at a pep rally for Hillary in Iowa. "We want somebody in there that knows what they're doing because this job is so huge."

Johnson is the third major celebrity to endorse Clinton after Oprah announced her plans to campaign for Obama. (Oprah campaigned for Obama weekend before last.) Madonna and Barbra Streisand announced their support a couple of weeks ago.

So will Madonna + Barbra + Magic = Oprah? 

Nope. Not even close.

 Just days earlier on September 8, Oprah Winfrey will host a fundraiser for Barack Obama at her Montecito estate.
