Spike Lee for Obama

In an interview with New York magazine, Spike Lee explained the reasons behind his decision to support Sen. Barack Obama for president over his hometown senator Hillary Clinton.

"The Clintons, man, they would lie on a stack of Bibles," he said of the New York senator and her husband, former president Bill Clinton. "Snipers? That's not misspeaking; that's some pure bulls***. I voted for Clinton twice, but that's over with."

Meanwhile, Obama may have told Lee just "the right thing" to earn the filmmaker's support.

"Barack told me the first date he took Michelle to was 'Do the Right Thing,'" noted Lee, who says he told the Illinois senator, "Thank God I made it. Otherwise you would have taken her to 'Soul Man.' Michelle would have been like, 'What's wrong with this brother?'"
