Kim Kardashian Is, Like, Impressed with Barack Obama

Apr 24, 2008 | 6:03am EDT

Endorsing a presidential candidate is so hot these days that even Kim Kardashian has weighed in.

The reality TV star has backed Democrat Barack Obama in his bid for the White House, according to E! Online (whose TV network airs Keeping Up with the Kardashians).

Kardashian revealed her choice for prez at the launch party for Joe Francis’ Girls Gone Wild magazine. (Click here for photos from the launch party.

But then Kardashian dropped an even bigger bomb: She had dinner with the Illinois senator!

Candlelight? Followed by a movie? Sadly, no on both accounts; Kardashian quickly explained that their dinner was anything but one-on-one: “It wasn’t just him and I. I was at an event.”

"He just seemed very firm about the change, and that’s, like, his motto," Kardashian said, probably trying to allude to Obama’s "Change We Can Believe In" campaign slogan.

Obama was defeated handily, much to the surprise of political prognosticators, by his presumed-underdog opponent Hillary Clinton in Tuesday’s Pennsylvania primary. Both candidates have in recent weeks received numerous celebrity endorsements.

The next primaries will take place on May 6 in Indiana and North Carolina.

Keeping Up with the Kardashians is currently in its second season on the E! network.
