Angelina Jolie: ‘An American President Like Barack Obama Would Be Nice For My Family’

Humanitarian mom and movie star Angelina Jolie has yet to endorse a candidate for president in this historic race, but has finally given kudos to Sen. Barack Obama in the German edition of Vanity Fair.

While she says his mixed background is “good,” Jolie says “it’s not a sufficient reason to vote for him.” But where he stands on the issues makes him a tempting choice.

“Obama fights for international justice, he wants to militarily intervene in cases of genocide, and close Guantanamo Bay,” the Changeling star says. “These are the things that could move me to vote for him, not his roots.”

But in terms of his roots: “Naturally, an American president like Barack Obama would be nice for my family.”

New BFF Alert: John McCain and…Daddy Yankee?!

To the surprise of many reporters, instead of introducing his running mate, John McCain introduced his “special friend” Daddy Yankee (née Ramon Ayala) at Phoenix’s Central High School (his wife Cindy’s alma mater) on Monday.

Boasting not only the Latino vote, Mccain, who met the “Gasolina” reggaeton singer a party for Time’s Most Influential People list, is showing his hip, young factor by being seen with the hip artist.

“I’m here endorsing Sen. McCain,” said Daddy Yankee, who decided to endorse McCain after he supported the immigration reform bill. “I believe in his ideals to lead this nation…he’s been a fighter for the Hispanic community…he’s been a fighter for the immigration issue…”

“I just want to say thank you Daddy Yankee,” McCain added.
