But remember the 2008 election? Then presidential hopeful Senator Barack Obama took the country by storm inspiring men and women to get involved in the political scene.

Today, there's a new film in theaters about the magic President Obama inspired across the nation. The Obama Effect stars Charles S. Dutton as an insurance man who becomes obsessed with getting Barack Obama elected to the White House, reports EURweb.
