Every presidential candidate can use a sexy blonde movie star to liven up his or her campaign, appear at big money events and rally the entertainment community. Sen. Barack Obama's go-to Hollywood hottie is Scarlett Johansson, a starlet who trades frequent e-mails with the presumptive Democratic nominee, campaigns tirelessly on his behalf, hosts lucrative fundraisers and even appeared in that "Yes We Can" viral video that got 10 million views in its first week online.
Drawn to his candidacy largely because of her anti-war views, she met Obama several times on the trail, talking to him one-on-one on many occasions. "The most time I spent with him was the first time I met him, at a private event for supporters," she said. "After that, it's been a few minutes here, a few minutes there on the trail."
She e-mailed him after some of the Democratic debates...
His replies have been thoughtful, she says, more than a brief line or two; on the ABC debate, he responded that the questioning was "difficult" and he was being pounded on "one silly question after another."
Johansson is somewhat shocked that he keeps up their back-and-forth correspondence.
He has followed her career as well, telling her that his favorite performance was her turn in "Lost in Translation."

They trade e-mails? Do Michelle know about this? Man oh man, I wouldn’t want to get on her bad side.

They both speak “airhead.” Everything else is lost in translation.

It would just be sooooo much funnier if it were Denise Richards....

Hollywood actresses swooning over a Democrat? So where’s the news?
Every other woman who works for Hussein should be insulted, I bet they don’t get to trade emails with him why should she?
Okay, I’ll say it:
OBVIOUSLY, those AREN’T brains.
Some people will do anything for attention...
Is this a Monica moment?
