The "Sun-Times" quotes an un-named source inside the campaign who said, "(Lindsay) is not exactly the kind of high-profile star who would be a positive for us." The source cited the young stars public battles with addiction and her "party-girl" image.

Lindsay's father, Michael Lohan, responded to the perceived snub in an e-mail to FoxNews.com's "Pop Tarts" column. "For Barack Obama to condemn my daughter for past indiscretions when he admitted to the exact same himself is indicative of what kind of president he would be," he wrote.

"His visions of a positive future for this country should be representative of a positive future for people as well. It is looking beyond the difficult times and letting go of the past," Michael Lohan said. "Obviously, Obama can do this for himself and not others, when in fact a good president should have hope for all."

Despite the campaign's rejection, Lindsay continues to be a vocal supporter of Obama. She was expected to attend several Hollywood fundraisers this week and has voiced her disapproval of Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin on her MySpace blog.
