President Obama’s “Celebrity Wishlist” Revealed

Submitted by on January 18, 2012 – 4:32 pm4 Comments

The effect of celebrity political endorsements is yet to be measured and sometimes their involvement can do more harm than good, but President Obama is apparently scouting a number of big names for their support as he attempts to remain in office another four years.

The President may have Jay-Z on speed dial and can count legions of Hollywood’s stars as his elite cheerleaders, but according to The Tenneseean (the publication that obtained the document) the Obama campaign has a list of 194 public figures that was reportedly distributed to a group of donors in Washington last month as a “wish-list” of endorsers.

This isn’t the full list but it’s apparently Obama’s top picks (there are some interesting names here):

Marc Anthony
Arcade Fire
India Arie
Sara Bareilles
Chris Cornell
Counting Crows
Robert Cray
David Anthony
Eric Robertson and the Boston Boys
Josh Groban
Bruce Hornsby
Jack Johnson
Jonas Brothers
Alicia Keys
Lady Antebellum
John Legend
Adam Levine
Ricky Martin
Chrisette Michelle
Lea Michele
Bette Midler
Janelle Monae
Penn Masala
Esperanza Spalding
Regina Spektor
Curtis Stigers
The Band Perry
The Roots
Vampire Weekend
