The beloved star broke her standard political silence to back the incumbent in his quest for another term.

America's Golden Girl is hoping to see President Obama return to the White House.

Betty White told the Associated Press that while she is bi-partisan and tries not to wade into politics, in part not to alienate fans from both sides of the aisle, she "very, very much favors" Obama for re-election.

The beloved 90-year old entertainer says she's a fan of how Obama "represents us," and gives a thumbs up to the accomplishments of his first term.

Perhaps she was flattered that Obama paid tribute to her in January's NBC celebration of her long career; the president released a video in which he jokingly asked to see her long-form birth certificate.

Hollywood has been warming up to the president of late; many top stars attended George Clooney's $15 million fundraiser for Obama this week, while many more have come out and praised his newly voiced support for marriage equality.
