Madrid - If JK Rowling had a magic wand, she would make Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama president of the United States, the best-selling Harry Potter author said in an interview published by the Spanish daily El Pais on Friday. Rowling confessed she was "obsessed" with the US elections because of the negative influence US foreign policy has had in other countries, including Britain and Spain.

"I find it a pity that Clinton and Obama have to be rivals because both of them are extraordinary," Rowling said.

Asked whether Harry Potter was her hero, the author said her real- life hero was the late Robert Kennedy.

Rowling said she disliked being a public personality and preferred a writer's life in solitude.

"Everything we do in life is an attempt to deny death," she said on commenting on the theme of death in her novels.

"I feel very drawn to religion, but at the same time I feel a lot of uncertainty. I live in a state of spiritual flux. I believe in the permanence of the soul," Rowling said in her only interview with a Spanish newspaper to date.

JK and Politics
By: 59 year old GranMa , Tue, 12 Feb 2008 13:09:56 GMT

I feel 'celebraties' should keep their political feelings to themselves. JK is a fantastic story teller.. I have re-read all the Potter books multiple times.. and revel in the plot and grammarical advancments.. also I appreciate the mental gymnastics she creates within the reader.

Maybe she does. She CANNOT speak for each human being. Has this woman gone totally mental?
