Brad Pitt Might Run For Office?

Would You Vote For Brad Pitt?

Brad Pitt made quite the appearance on Capitol Hill last week. He met with Nancy Pelosi and President Obama to discuss his Make It Right New Orleans housing project. Now rumors are inevitably flying that Brad might go further than meeting with public officials and run for public office himself.

For a while now Brad has shown an interest in public service, so his sincerity probably wouldn't be questioned. Perhaps as a politician he could act as a more effective high-profile vehicle for the causes he cares about. While he doesn't exactly have the specific training, he wouldn't be the first actor to seek public office. Plus, he has the right look.

Could you get used to seeing Brad Pitt on the Hill?

I wouldn't vote for him because he's a liberal. If he were a conservative then I wouldn't necessarily vote for him based on "qualifications" I simply disagree with his policies.

YES, I WOULD but he would NEVER run for office....never....guy is laid back and tho he has his projects (green housing/charities/africa, etc.) he would NEVER sacrifice his family time. Just the way the guy rolls...maybe once the kids are 18 or something...not now. this is a rumor.

If I had to pick any movie star it would be George Clooney. I think he is far smarter and more capable. He actually spends some time in Africa to learn more about what he is talking about. Brad has usually just flown in and out, even in New Orleans. If you are on hand more with any project you get more done and faster. Even Ben Affleck and Matt Damon seem to be more involved. No I don't think I would vote for any of them. There are far more qualified people out there. Look at all the years that it has been since Karina and not much has been accomplished. Texas just happened. No one has hardly mentioned it. Ellen has pushed the MIR all the time but she hardly even gets mentioned and she collected a lot for it at the time if happened but I'm not sure that means that she should be President. I think everybody is getting a little carried away.

hmm I don't know enough about him to know if he would be good at it, and I might have some prejudice against him but since I don't live in the USA I don't think I'll ever be in position to make this choice :P

I don't think I would vote for him, because I have the impression that he has fairly liberal political views (though I could be wrong). The article just says he might run for office, so who know? Maybe he'd run for school board. Or dog catcher!

Im always more impressed with celebrities who use their power to push a nonpartisan cause versus a candidate or use it for their own political power.

My gut reaction is that I wouldn't vote for him. I would listen to his policies and decide from there. I'm glad he is pitching in and helping in NOLA, and not complaining from Hollywood that the government should be doing more.

Haha, not how hard "we" works, should be "how hard he works". Today is not my day for accurate typing.

I'm going to assume you wrote that comment without reading my previous post. Obviously I wasn't around when Ron Paul started his career in politics, so I don't know too much about what prep work he did before being elected. I do know how hard we works now, and I approve.

I just didn't realize he had done all the prep work when transitioning into politics.

Hypno, I think we can agree that years of experience in politics aren't a necessity. I'm more interested in the knowledge, and if you can get that without holding an elected office for a decade, then that's fine by me.
hypnoticmix hypnoticmix 8 years
The way I see it Mich is that you have better peace of mind if a candidate is seasoned with years of experience and that's fine. I ain't mad at you. I'm just saying they don't have to be to do a great job and that's all there is to it.
