Obama Girl is Back!

For this entire election season, it's seemed like something has been missing. Something musical...something charming...something like...OBAMA GIRL.

Yes, we're talking about the irreverent songstress who first crashed onto the political music video scene in 2008 with a short but impassioned ditty about her undying love for Obama. Well, she's back, and this time, instead of hiring a model to lip-sync the lyrics, singer/songwriter Leah Kauffman stars in her own video about why we need to re-elect "the sexiest candidate." She opines:

I spent eight years with W; I wanted change, I wanted you; You didn't get to do the things you wanted to but here's your chance...You're into marriage equality; what do you think about polygamy? Is there room for me in the White House? I've still got a crush on Obama.

And Obama Girl, we've still got a crush on you.
