Clooney For President?!

One of our favorite hottie activist/actors, George Clooney told reporters yesterday that "you don't want me in politics." Mr. Clooney was speaking at an event where Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation aimed at helping stop genocidal violence in the Darfur region of Sudan. Even though the sexy man knows he'd get a large amount of female votes, apparently he is not interested in running for office. Here's more:

The actor-director skillfully deflected a barrage of questions from reporters about a potential Clooney candidacy, after appearing at an event where Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger signed legislation aimed at helping stop genocidal violence in the Darfur region of Sudan.

Told that fans are clamoring for the "Syriana" star to run for office, he said with a subtle head shake, "Believe me, you don't want me in politics."

When asked what he thought about people wearing T-shirts urging Clooney to seek the presidency in 2008, he added, "I think they're probably kidding."

Asked again if he would try to get his name on a ballot, Clooney said, "That's a bad idea."

We may think otherwise George. However, as much as we like to see him involved in helping others, we must be selfish and say we'd much rather see him make more movies! For more pics of Clooney at the event, along with fellow activist and Ocean's castmate, Don Cheadle,

lol Twinkle! Now that would be funny. Reminds me of that new movie with Robin Williams. The comediane that runs for prez and actually wins. It looks funny. Man of the Year I guess its called. While looking that up on imdb.com I noticed a Mrs. DoubtfireII. mmm

Everyone compromises.. these people are owned before they get into office..PPP why no women President?
gracey gracey 10 years
That's very true Twinkle! lol They forget to mention the affairs and all too something that just about downed Clinton. Let alone the Marilyn rumours.

Bill Maher would get my vote.
gracey gracey 10 years
see? Britain had a woman PM years ago, the States are falling behind! lol She was ruthless though. Canada even had a female PM for a very very short period I agree Jinx, Jon Stewart would make an awesome prez. Since he wouldn't compromise (I hope) his integrity he would never make it in political office though.

JFK wasn't good looking but the actors who played him usually were :)
gracey gracey 10 years
LOL yeah ok ohsuri! good one.

As a woman...Ohsuri, I certainly hope not! I have a feeling I will stir up trouble, so I will refrain from commenting further, suffice to say a woman president, right now...NOOOO!!!

Jr. was hot. JFK was ok, nothing special by my books. I wasn't alive then either just for the record. The Kennedy's have many skeletons in their closets... Poor Rosemary for one.

We shall see.. maybe we will have a female President?

I'm not big on the whole actors for President idea, but Jon Stewart would get my vote before George, no offence to George.

I wasn't alive when JFK was president but my mom said he was so good looking. I know his son, John, was hot.
gracey gracey 10 years
JFK was good looking?
teddybear teddybear 10 years
We haven't had a good looking president since JFK.
gracey gracey 10 years
oh ok Peep wasn't sure there. lol So what do you think about Canada's current PM? LMAO. its ok I'm kidding.

No doubt he would be the hottest Prez ever and maybe Jon Stewart could be his VP and Angelina Secretary of State and we wouldn't need a Secretary of Defense because wars are just yukky - WTF? Do people really go to gossip sites to discuss politics? Doesn't seem smart IMO. Kind of like talking religion with the in-laws. Can't we all just drool over his Deliciousness?

Well...he would be the hottest president EVER and is smarter and more compassionate than the current dude in office.

Right, gracey! I don't think that actually was addressed since ohsuri said that Clinton could read the script also. Bill Clinton was NOT an actor. (Those aren't political statements, I mean actor as in actual Hollywood actor.)
yayita yayita 10 years
He would be the hottest president around
gracey gracey 10 years
Yeah that's what I meant Peep...?
peepshow peepshow 10 years
Uh, Ronald Reagan was an actor...
gracey gracey 10 years
Yeah ohsuri he was, but he was good on his feet too, remember those Town Hall meetings. He was at least intelligent. He was a Rhode scholar so he had some brains for sure(he should've used his big head more often). Dubya well, lol idk.
