Spotify got a major endorsement from President Barack Obama today. Obama for America announced that the official 2012 campaign playlist is available on the popular music-streaming service.

The playlist has 28 tracks with an eclectic mix of artists, including Bruce Springsteen, Arcade Fire, and, of course, Al Green.

It seems like Obama for America is doing everything it possibly can to keep President Obama's reputation as the first Internet President. In the last year, the president has joined Google+ , Instagram , and Tumblr. It was actually on the social blogging site Tumblr that the campaign announced the Spotify playlist.

During his 2008 presidential campaign, candidate Obama built a movement by using sites like YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. Many dubbed him the first Internet President because of his savvy use of Web sites and social media.

Spotify launched in the U.S. in 2011 to great fanfare. Its easy user interface and extensive music library solidified its popularity in the music-streaming space.
