Alec Baldwin Coming to an Election Near You?

Alec Baldwin is getting ready to retire from acting. The Democratic actor just sat down with 60 Minutes to discuss his future in . . . politics!

Now that he's turning 50, Alec says he's ripe for elected office. I say —now that he's 50, he also has more skeletons in his not-so-private closet.

But, Alec says he's ready for the public scrutiny, and will be more careful about his actions. He explained:

You can pretty much bet all you own that I would never leave another voicemail message for my daughter that wasn’t just like something out of a Rogers and Hammerstein score.

Want to hear more of this? The whole interview will air this Sunday.

Alec has had politics on the brain for a while. Back in 2004, Alec had strong words for fellow actor Arnold Schwarzenegger, saying "if the largest, most economically significant state in America could elect a man who is totally unqualified for the job, then they can elect anyone."

Going back even further, in 2000 Alec said he would move to Canada if George W. Bush was elected. Guess he couldn't find a flight!

Do you think Americans want to cast movie stars as their leaders? Would you vote for Alec?

When I think of the people who immigrated here and made a successful living, I think that is what makes the American dream. When I think of those who were born here and though born in poverty, they also became successful, that is the American dream. It's there, people have to work for it. True it's not perfect and there are a lot of things wrong. But I think it's a joke to those who are bitter and expect a handout.

you're right. it is delusional. we are in agreement.

Tell that to the people who died defending your "dream world", YY. And living is only great if everyone wakes up and stops living under the delusion that it's one big joke.
yesteryear yesteryear 9 years
america ISNT what it appears to be. that's what makes living here so great. it's a dream world. wake up stiletta.

YY, I don't think it's a matter of recognizing that your country has flaws which irks me, it's the "joke" part. As though it's not legitimate or substantial. As though America were somehow not what it appeared to be. That's what I find offensive. Call it misguided, or on the wrong the track, but not a lie.

Of course, I guess I'm still a newbe. Stilletta? Where did you go? You aren't loading a bazooka, are you? ;)
hartsfull hartsfull 9 years
You are right YY, I agree with saying what you think isn't right or you don't like. I don't agree with flat out bashing. Sorry, I get irate when that happens. :rant:
hartsfull hartsfull 9 years
I am certain someone else would have gotten it. You just happen to be here with a newbe and a dork. :nerdgirl: GS is the newbe. I think it would be understandable that the newbe not catch it right away. Besides more so in her defense, she probably is druged on pain killers! Forget how worthless and weak I'd be on painkillers. My blonde roots would surely show! :D

there are a lot of things about america, and every other country, that can be viewed as "a joke". and who better to realize and understand those things than the people who themselves live in the country? whats the problem with recognizing that?

Honestly, Harts and GS, I was just being sarcastic! I think it's disgusting that people call our country a joke when people are fighting to defend it. I don't know how to use emoticons yet so it came off as sincere! Now you all think I'm a terrorist!
hartsfull hartsfull 9 years
Sorry Stilleta! :notworthy: That explains why I was so confused it coming from you. I am slow with humor sometimes. Things fly right over my head. :oops:

Don't misunderstand. I would understand anyone being patriotic of their country-whatever country. I'm not sticking my toungue out at people saying, "My country is better than yours." I would support anyones pride of their country. Of course if they happen to come here and say, I love this country, I'm more partial to that. I dated a french guy once who condemned my patriotism. He scorned my pride. I said, "Aren't you proud of your country? What's wrong with people being proud of their country?"

I was being sarcastic, hartsfull. I don't think it came across.
hartsfull hartsfull 9 years
Ah yes turning the other cheek. That will keep everyone at bay. :oy: Other people in other countries aren't fighting and dying for their country but they are fighting and dying from oppressors of the same country. Is communism another word for agreement?
Great-Sommelier Great-Sommelier 9 years
First Harmony, no problem girl. I can be friends with anyone! In fact, I have completely differnt ideals than most of my friends. Second, stiletta, we wouldn't even have this country if people hadn't fought and died for it. You wouldn't have most of what you have today if people hadn't.
stiletta stiletta 9 years
I do think that our country is a joke especially when we have people fighting and dying for it.

America isn't a joke, it's some of the people here, not the whole country, same as anywhere else.
yesteryear yesteryear 9 years
hartsfull: calm down. i think america is a joke a lot of the time too... and i'm not going anywhere. you want to live in a country where everyone agrees on everything? then move to china, they are way ahead of us on stifling dissent and killing people who question things.
hartsfull hartsfull 9 years
Cotton, if you think America is a joke, I hope you don't live here. If you do, move to another country.

Well Great Sommelier. It looks like we are going to have to learn to coexist. I'm up for it if you are. Welcome to citizensugar! ;)
