On the Newsstand: Is George Clooney Going to be President?

This month's Radar magazine asked the burning question, "Why is Hollywood hating on Clooney?" I wasn't aware of Clooney's political ambitions, though this passage struck me as...not out of the realm of possibility? (He has been seen hanging out with Barack Obama, after all.) Rupert Everett who has no love-lost for Clooney, remarked on George's political prospects:

"He's not the brightest spark on the boulevard. He'll be president one day. Mark my words, if he's straight, he'll be president."

The piece goes on to say:

Though Everett seems to have meant it as an insult (and in the waning days of the Bush years, it's gotta sting), Clooney's name has, in fact, been bandied about recently as a possible candidate for governor of California, and, according to gossip columnist Cindy Adams, Arnold himself is fanning the flames. (Of the buzz, the actor has said, "Believe me, you don't want me in politics." Self-deprecating, sexy, yet slyly ambiguous—that's Clooney!)

Well, I suppose if you'd told me ten years ago that the Terminator would be a governor...

What do you think? Are we ready for President Clooney? I bet the line for the Lincoln Bedroom would be a lot longer...
