Jessica Alba, Barack Obama

Denver, natch, was the place to be last week if you were looking for our fave kind of Star Spangled Banner. Seriously, the Democratic National Convention was like shopping on Roberston Boulevard on a Saturday. Obama pulled A-listers like Susan Sarandon, Kanye West, Matthew McConaughey, Justin Timberlake and Oprah Winfrey—just to name a few.

Let's just hope these starry salutes don't backfire on the historic candidate, but what with Jed and Elly May Clampett running against him, don't think that's too much of a prob.

Support for B.O. is even eminent at the newest celeb hangout: the online blog. Jessica Alba called her trip to Colorado "eye-opening" and that no fancy party "compares to what took place on Invesco Field." Other blog offenders include Maroon 5 and Lindsay Lohan.

Howev, the same celeb support can't be said for the RNC, which is currently taking place like some kind of church bake sale with bouffant-big speakers added for extra special sparkle. So far the biggest honcho McCain has attracted is Angie's estranged father, Jon Voight. Think he shared any parenting tips with Sarah Palin? We wouldn't be surprised.

Other Barack rejects include Daddy Yankie and Daughtry. Rumors even swirled that good girl Carrie Underwood would be performing this week, but her rep told us, "She is not attending." Maybe Johnny-Boy should bring Heidi and Spencer out when he accepts his nom? J.M. could really use some of the blondie babes' publicity tips right about now.
