Clooney: Obama's Like a Rock Star

9/1/2007 9:55 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

George Clooney's got a little crush on Obama. The two-time Sexiest Man Alive threw his considerable charm behind presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

"You've been in a room once in a while with a rock star. He walks into the world, and he takes your breath away. I'd love him to be president, quite honestly," said Clooney on Friday at the Venice Film Festival premiere of his legal thriller, "Michael Clayton."

Clooney attended a fundraiser for Obama in February, but also had kind words to say about the other candidates -- and even ruminated as to whether "Inconvenient Truth"-er Al Gore would toss his hat in the race.



Usher: Meet My Son, Usher

R&B crooner/cougar-lover Usher Raymond and his pregnant bride, Tameka Foster, don't know if they're having a boy or a girl, but he's gunnin' for a son.

If he gets his way, he's naming the little tyke after -- who else? -- himself. "I'm hoping to name him that. I've been playing with a few names. I'm the fourth. Usher Raymond IV. I just want to pass the name on. Maybe I'll change the middle name," said Raymond on the Ellen DeGeneres show, reports People.

Raymond and Foster married last month in a civil ceremony, but are planning to tie-the-knot -- again -- in an over-the-top ceremony in Atlanta this weekend.
