Ben Affleck Gives Barack Obama Manly Hug

by at .

While Jon Stewart will not have an active role in the 2008 Presidential Race - aside from mocking the heck out of it - one man is exciting the democratic party with talk of a run:

Barack Obama.

Lonely Ben Affleck

The Illinois Senator may have seen his popularity nosedive during a visit to Los Angeles last week, however. Once there, he was joined by Ben Affleck at a news conference to promote California Proposition 87, the Clean Alternative Energy Act.

Having the support of Affleck isn't exactly a good thing these days. Just ask the Boston Red Sox. Or Jennifer Lopez (if you remember who she is).

While Obama seems into this hug, you gotta figure he's thinking to himself: Coudn't this have been Jennifer Garner instead?
