Well, here's why I care what George Clooney thinks:
Regardless of what you think of George Clooney, I feel strongly that we can use all the straight allies we can get. Actors, politicians, and others in the public eye have greater visibility and a louder voice than you or I ever will.
The more vocal our straight allies are, and the more the general public hears their messages, then the more likely it is that they WILL convince someone to change their opinion.
In his book "The Assault on Reason" Al Gore explains in chilling detail how well the political machines know this. If you repeat something often enough (even if it isn't true) the general public will eventually begin to take the message as fact.
Clooney, GaGa, and the ballsy republican state Senators from New York who got marriage passed... I'm happy to have all their support.
