Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore say Washington is buzzing with excitement. "I'm shaking," Demi says. "I just feel so much gratitude for my children to be experiencing this," she says.

Like Oprah, Ashton says he became a supporter of President-elect Obama after his 2004 speech at the Democratic National Convention. Ashton says he and Demi were able to attend a gathering with the then-Senator Obama, who had yet to declare his run for presidency. "He said, 'Making a decision like that is going to affect my whole family. It's going to affect my wife. It's going to affect me. And I have to take into consideration how it's going to affect them before I can make that decision for myself.' And I thought, 'If we have somebody who can run our country and see the world in that way—where he's thinking about their best interests before our own, about family, about the world—that's a world I want to live in,'" Ashton says.
