(Newser) – Ferris Bueller didn’t believe in -isms, only himself, but actor Matthew Broderick believes in Barack Obama. In a campaign video, Broderick urges people to emulate Ferris and “Take the day off”—only this time, to volunteer for Obama. “Life moves pretty fast,” he says, reprising a famous line. “If you don’t stop and look around once in awhile, you could miss it.”
