Soap And Underwear For Obama

Quick! What do these words have in common:

Soap

Underwear

Christian

Barack Obama




Answer: Underwear designer Andrew Christian is staging a unique fundraising strategy for the Obama campaign:

1. Put Obama's face on underwear.
2. Put sexy soap opera stars in underwear.
3. Put stars in front of big ol' American flag.
4. Take pictures.
5. Sell underwear.
6. Give money to Obama campaign.

Simple, right? The stars talked to interviewer Michael Farris about their decisions to pose:

What made you decide to participate in an “Obama” underwear shoot?

LESLI KAY (Felicia) “B&B”

It has nothing to do with my body, and has everything to do with my political beliefs. I got an email saying it was, “Daytime for Obama” and I am there. My brother works on the Obama campaign in West Virginia, which is kind of an oxymoron. I am from West Virginia. Forever, I have been trying to organize something like that, thinking about those states… Pennsylvania, Ohio…. that we could have some sort of soap event for Obama. There are a lot of soap fans in those states. If they thought for a second it was OK for us to vote for Obama, this could help somebody who is on the fence who wasn’t planning to vote, but now they would. We are on vacation from “B&B” right now…. a three week hiatus. I changed all of my vacation plans around this shoot. This is very important to me that Obama is our next president.

BLAKE BERRIS (Nick) “DAYS”

I wanted to take off my clothes any chance I get. I will do it! (He laughs) No. I am a huge Barack Obama supporter, and I really believe his candidacy and election will be a great departure from the last 8 years with George Bush and Dick Cheney and that administration. I am trying to do whatever I can to help him get elected.

Who can argue with the brilliant logic of soap opera actors, right?
