Obama Dashes Lindsay Lohan’s Political Aspirations

Lindsay Lohan won’t be whispering influential nothings into the ear of Democratic Presidential candidate Barack Obama anytime soon (which is probably a good thing for both of them).

Despite her eloquent blog-bashing of John McCain’s running mate Sarah Palin over the weekend, Senator Obama’s camp isn’t too keen on cozying up to punchy ol’ Linds, says the Chicago Sun-Times.

“LiLo was interested in becoming very involved in the Democratic ticket’s bid for the White House—even offering to host a series of events appealing to younger voters,” reports the paper.

However, a top Obama campaign source says Lohan ”is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us.”

Golly, what ever might have given those Capitol Hill snobs that outlandish notion?

Ah, well. Cheer up, Lindsay. You’ve got other happy news to occupy your time, anyway.
