George Clooney: I Root for the President

VIDEO: The actor says he supports Obama but won't campaign. 


On Good Morning America this morning, George Clooney told host George Stephanopoulos that he's rooting for President Obama in 2012, saying, "I'm a Democrat -- I'm a believer. I think he's done a wonderful job; I think he's having a tough time in a difficult environment. I root for him. I root for the president of the United States."

Clooney made sure to distinguish fundraising from campaigning, explaining, "I didn't do any campaigning. Because I'm a big believer -- I really don't think it helps much to have well-known, famous people campaigning for you. I don't think that does you a lot of good."
