Hollywood's "Tell"?

Remember 2008, when Hollywood just couldn't get enough of Barack Obama?  In one of those small but revealing signs, let's just say that after four years of "hope and change," the entertainment community's enthusiasm for Obama has become somewhat, ahem,

mutedExhibit A is, of course, Oprah Winfrey.

But likewise, Barbra Streisand won't sing at his LA fundraiser.  And Jessica Alba -- whose support in 2008 was so rabid that she actually appeared in a video "inspired" by an Obama speech -- had this to say the other night on Piers Morgan:

MORGAN: So it's either nothing or Obama? 

ALBA: No, I'm going to vote. I think it's actually irresponsible to not exercise your right to vote. So yes, I probably, most definitely will be voting on that side. But then again, you know, it's not like I completely and totally agree with everything that goes on. I think, you know, there is a lot of room for improvement.
