Jeri Ryan -- The Real Obama Girl

2/15/2008 3:50 PM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Jeri Ryan, Barack ObamaIf Barack Obama ends up winning the White House, the first person he should probably thank on Election Night is ... Jeri Ryan. Like, "Star Trek's" Seven of Nine Jeri Ryan? Yup.

Let's explain.

Back in 2004, when Obama was a small-time State Senator from Illinois and running for a U.S. Senate seat, his GOP opponent was Jack Ryan, a super-wealthy businessman who was actually favored in the contest -- and who had gone through a messy divorce from ... Jeri Ryan.

The divorce was a slapfight of Hasselhoffian proportions, and Jeri's allegations that Jack had forced her to go to sex clubs in New York and Paris -- and wanted her to have sex with him in the clubs -- completely ruined Jack's campaign ... and Obama went on to win the seat. And now, perhaps, the one in the Oval Office.

We asked Ryan's rep how she feels about it, but haven't heard back yet.

For all the comments against Obama, realize that seriously putting up an amazing campaign in essence without detailing a single solution to any issue. Say what you will, he was the underdog and now is the top contender. In addition he will be able to quickly dispatch the ancient relic McCain. Obama has the respect and the support of a broad range of politicians and leaders across party lines that would gladly lend support to Obama whenever needed. Once he secures the White House, he need only concentrate on building his cabinet. Edwards for example will definitely have his pick of several high level positions for example IF he wants it.

NOW...JERI RYAN.....say what you will. SEVEN OF NINE is a FINE, AMAZING PIECE OF ASS...she probably kept Star Trek Voyager alive for a season or two just off those skin tight outfits alone.

THANK YOU GENE RODDENBERRY!

Bob. My name is the same forwards and backwards    

Change! We need change to change the change in the change. CHANGE!

That's all he can say. He has no plan. He will NEVER in a million years be President.

I think it's cute though, all his little racists supporters, who are only voting for him b/c he's black. I find that extremely racist.




WHOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! A Republican will be in the White House....AGAIN!


WHOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!

That's true about Obama.

I live in Chicago, and he was on his way to "also-ran" status b/c Jack Ryan had the race locked up. Unfortunately Ryan couldn't keep his pants locked up and went down in flames. Obama then ran virtually unopposed (a very weak opponent was subbed in late the in late race, but was never a contender) and won his senate seat.

And now here we are. Sorry for you who don't like the story - those are truly the facts!

Actually, who Obama has to thank is the Chicago Tribune and their subsidiary, WLS-TV. They are the ones who sued to have Jeri & Jack Ryan's divorce records unsealed. WHY they did this has never been revealed but I think it is one of the sleaziest acts of political hatred ever. Those divorce records were sealed for a reason - to protect their child. They both agreed to seal the records and the original judge in their divorce case agreed as well. Who in the hell at the Chicago Tribune is responsible for the decision to hurt their child and help Obama by unsealing those records? THAT is the person who needs to be called out!

For the sake of kids    

If Obama is half white than I am half "black"- Color really doesn't matter. What matters is he is scary for not only having no experience with economic/political/ millitary affairs, but he has not expressed any valid political platform and will expose our borders and our country to unwanted elements. Hillary scares me too, but not as much. And trust me I am registered republican but will vote for someone from either party who has valid grounds. I would love if someone with solid credentials jumps into the race and will win both parties. What about Bloomberg? He can do it.

Standards are badly needed.    

Uhm, to the ignorant non-reader @ 2:18PM - the 'peanut farmer' Jimmy Carter won the Nobel Peace Prize, idiot. You'd better start by knowing what the he*l you're talking about. Try Wikipedia for starters. You should be able to manage that.

Barack is the "Magic Negro" ! Google the term before you have a knee jerk reaction. He soothes liberal white guilt about past racial discrimination in America. He speaks in flowery terms that mean nothing and everything to anyone that hears him.

Barack is life imitating art. Go rent the 1979 movie called "Being There" . Peter Sellers got an academy award nomination for his role as a dimwitted man who speaks like Obama and and almost becomes president! IMHO, he would not being getting a second glance by the media if he was white.
