With the 2012 presidential election right around the corner, President Barack Obama is turning to his secret weapon to help him campaign: Bo.

Obama’s official store is now selling buttons featuring the “handsome First Dog” for $5 in packs of two.

Other, less famous pets can join in the re-election efforts by sporting their own gear, like the Cats for Obama collar or the Barack’s Best Friend dog leash.

Since joining the White House in April 2009, Bo’s crashed an interview with dad, mingled with celebs and even starred in portraits with mom. Looks like he’ll be adding hitting the campaign trail to his list of accomplishments in 2011!
