Celebrities have come out in force during the long U.S. presidential race, hosting fundraisers, throwing concerts and performing at campaign rallies around the nation.

But not country star Carrie Underwood.

Unlike Barbra Streisand, who’s been doing a round of last minute radio station Q&As in support of Democrat Barack Obama, Underwood is staying mum.

“I lose all respect for celebrities when they back a candidate,”  the “All-American Girl” singer tells TV Guide in its November 10th issue.

“It’s saying that the American public isn’t smart enough to make their own decisions,” she said.  “I would never want anybody to vote for anything or anybody just because I told them to.
