Actress has a crush on Obama
Politico ^ | June 10, 2008 | JEFFREY RESSNER

Posted on 06/10/2008 11:59:13 AM PDT by FocusNexus

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."

Monica Lewinsky-2 in the making? "...she's made no secret of her deep devotion to the candidate. "I am engaged to Barack Obama," she said back in January, joking with reporters after returning from a USO tour to the Persian Gulf. "My heart belongs to Barack."

...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."..."

With a rack like that, surely you weren't really expecting brains, were you?

I thought not.

Nice to look at, pure torture to listen to...

I think they tried a silicone brain enhancement on her, didn’t work, so she settled for boobs.

Maybe she's one of those women who have an obsession with changing men, Obama is always talking about “change”. He's become the Tom Jones of leftists.

Personally speaking he's just, well, for lack of a better word...yucky.

I'd vote NOT GUILTY - if she weren't so enamored of the Obamessiah!

I have to say it. There is nothing attractive about Obama. He is skinny, has big ears and blue lips.

That description could describe many people in a nursing home.

Must be that heavy dose of marxism that gets the girls.

The Wall Street Journal had an article in Saturday’s edition that stated 61% of American Jews will vote for Obama. SJ is just following the trend.

“Johansson is somewhat shocked that he keeps up their back-and-forth correspondence.”

Little does she know, but her “correspondent” is some Obama flunky who has a crush on her. :)

It is kind of funny. The one semi-celeb I know about says he has no problem getting to talk to Hillary, but when he wants to talk to Obama, all he can get is a staffer. I guess it pays to be blond.
