Why did Maxine and Hallmark endorse Obama on Facebook?

Actually, Maxine is a cartoon character who endorsed herself for president; she did not endorse President Obama (nor did she endorse Mitt Romney). In mid-September 2012, her creator, John Wagner, decided to have Maxine run for office, and she announced she would become a candidate for president. That said, it is not entirely unusual for a mythical character to endorse someone: cartoonists have at times had their characters support or oppose a candidate ("Doonesbury" has waded into politics and current events a number of times). I enclose a link to Maxine's "announcement" of her desire to become the next president of the United States.
