Toby Keith, to the surprise of many, is a longtime Democrat. And though the country superstar has criticized his party's candidates in the past, this year he says he's pleased with the voters' choices.

"I'm real happy that there are two candidates that people can get behind," Keith tells PEOPLE magazine. "I feel like there are two people now – with Hillary [Clinton] and the time she's spent ... [Barack] Obama looks like a great speaker and a great leader. And I think you can learn on your feet in there, so I don't hold people responsible for not having a whole bunch of political background in the House and Senate."

Keith, who famously penned the post-9/11 song, 'The Angry American (Courtesy of the Red, White, and Blue),' was also complimentary of the Republican nominee.

"I think John McCain is a great option, too," he told PEOPLE. "I think we've got three great candidates running."

So who will Keith vote for? He hasn't decided.

"I'm still waiting and listening. I wish one of the two Democrats would get behind the other one and show us what we've got, but right now it's early in the game."

Regardless of who becomes our next President, Keith, who has performed 100 shows on USO tours, is adamant that Americans need to be supportive of the troops, even if they disagree with the President.

"I think everybody just needs to support our troops. That's all I tried to do," he said. "If I ever did anything wrong, it was just in support of our troops."
