"I have the utmost respect for him as an actor and as a director," Washington said. "He's my hero."
Although Washington supported Obama in 2008, he graciously declined to address an empty chair or do any "Eastwooding," as it's come to be known on the internet.
He calls himself an independent and said in this election he isn't committing to either side.

Washington was in the nation's capital along with Olympic champion Michael Phelps and R&B singer Ashanti for an event sponsored by the Boys and Girls Club of America.
