In honor of Independence Day, we will now relay an independent thought Kristin Cavallari once had about politics.

In June 2008, Kristin attended a “launch party for Op clothing,” at which event a reporter for Access Hollywood asked her how she planned to vote in the upcoming presidential election. Before first explaining that her “busy acting schedule does not allow for much time for politics,” Kristin offered the following observation:

Obama seems like a really cool genuine guy, which I think is hard to find nowadays in a president.

Really cool that Obama actually is the president nowadays and that Kristin was able to take time out of her busy acting schedule to offer an opinion on him.

This has been 500 Days of Kristin.
