White, 90, told the AP she "very, very much favors" Obama over his Republican rival, former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney. White hasn't been involved in politics over the course of her career, but she told the AP she likes Obama's record as president.

White, the star of "The Golden Girls," has returned to the spotlight lately, hosting "Saturday Night Live" in 2010. 

She's the latest celebrity to publicly back Obama. The president raised $15 million last week at the home of actor George Clooney, who also joined Obama for a basketball game.
