Despite Toby Keith's past public support of President George W. Bush and his famous post-Sept.11 song, "The Angry American (Courtesy of the Red White and Blue)," this year the country star says things have changed.
Keith, who in the past has said he's a Democrat but was unhappy with the party's candidates, now can support the current contenders for the nomination.
"I'm real happy that there are two candidates that people can get behind," he told PEOPLE at the CMT awards Monday. "I feel like there are two people now with Hillary [Clinton] and the time she's spent," he said of the former first lady and current New York senator.

Now I’d like to put a boot up HIS as*
Despite the loony lefty People spin, Keith praised McCain and did not say that he was endorsing Clinton or Obama.
Right. He’s a country singer, not a politician.
Next he’ll be touring with the Dixie Chicks.
If he comes out in support of either of the two moron liberals I’m done buying his music. I thought he was smarter than this.
“Next hell be touring with the Dixie Chicks.”
This is disgusting. It was one of my top 5 faves of all time.
He’ll find out soon enough.
I was just about to send a post with nearly the same words: He praised McCain, too. The headline is misleading. It sounds like he was trying to give safe answers to their political questions.
But I do wonder where he stands now: Maybe his support of the troops means he now wants them brought home...?
Who was Toby Keith?
He may be just representative of Americans who, once the war seems to be won, want to go back to their rat roots because war is just so icky.
This is a surprise.
Hes been hanging out behind the barn smokin to much weed with Old Willy.
He always has boasted about his parents Yellow Dog Democrat vote, plus he has stated that he’s a registered Democrat.
Cynical it may appear , but he may have been taking the “Patriot Way” for purely business concerns.
Al Franken has been to the Middle East just to give his talking points more “credibility”. Another a$$hat of Air America.
Yeah, I think we’ve known for a few years now that Keith butters his bread on the wrong side.
He’s gone Hollyweird..
this is disappointing. You’re right, I’d certainly think he’d support McCain.
Hey, we all want them brought home, it’s a matter of right way versus wrong way. The right way will come, but the wrong (premature) one will guarantee catastrophe for years to come.
I’m sure re: Franken, he’s trying to get a fast-track on gravitass, since he’s running for the senate (from Minnesota)! Isn’t that a scary thing.
