Obama has finished his fundraising tour, not by collecting more money, but in wowing a set of impressionable young actors and actresses who, incidentally, tweeted about it to their millions of fans. The early morning breakfast at the Beverly Hilton included two dozen young, attractive, popular stars, fitting figures, it seems, to help push Obama to getting reelected this year, since his last election had a huge push from the younger generation. Present were Avengers star Jeremy Renner, Glee actress Dianna Agron, Star Trek’s Zachary Quinto, Sutland’s Ben McKenzie, Jessica Alba, Bryan Greenberg, Adam Rodriquez, Zach Braff, Brandon Routh, Ian Somerhalder, Jared Leto, Kal Penn, and Sophia Bush.
The effort is part of a strategy called “Young America Effort.” After being impressed by the attention from the leader of the nation, they went on to text their eager fans.
Agron: “Maybe the only man I truly get nervous around. Worth the early wake up call.”
Greenberg: “Truly inspiration talking with @BarackObama today”
Bush: “It was amazing to see @iansomerhalder @ZacharyQuinto @DiannaAgron and @BryanGreenberg with the POTUS today. Good peeps. #YoungAmericans.”
Alba: “Got up bright & early to hear @BarackObama speak w an awesome group”
Somerhalder: “Totally surreal morning. Met up with some friends, had coffee with President Obama now tweeting. The 21st century… Let’s do this.” Followed by, “Just spend my morning w/this man talkn green energy, a better America&being a young American-wow.”
The medium of course bars the in-depth political issues the stars were contemplating after the event, but it did perhaps inspire countless fans to get with the cool candidate for this year’s election.
