Obama Getting Middle East Advice..From George Clooney?

Barack Obama has an interesting 'unofficial' adviser on the Middle east - Leftist actor George Clooney.

Sources say the actor has tried to hide the pair’s friendship for fear his Left-wing views and playboy image would hurt the Presidential hopeful’s bid for the White House.

But Democratic Party insiders have revealed that Clooney and Obama regularly send texts and emails to each other and speak by phone at least twice a week.

One said last night: ‘They are extremely close. A number of members of the Hollywood community, including Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck and Matt Damon, offered to help raise funds for Barack but it was with George that he struck up this amazing affinity.

‘George has been giving him advice on things such as presentation, public speaking and body language and he also emails him constantly about policy, especially the Middle East.

‘George is pushing him to be more “balanced” on issues such as US relations with Israel.

'George is pro-Palestinian. And he is also urging Barack to withdraw unconditionally from Iraq if he wins.

‘...they text and email each other almost every day and speak on the phone at least a couple of times a week, often more.’

Perhaps Clooney can find a cameo part for Obama in the new movie he's making about about Osama Bin Laden’s former driver Salim Hamdan's lawyer..

Clooney's spokesmouth Stan Rosenfeld admiited that Clooney and Obama had conversations, but had nothing further to say on the matter. And Obama’s Press office did not comment.
