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."
