President Clooney?

I can't stand this prick. Perhaps he could talk Sean Penn into being his VP.


http://rt.com/usa/166568-george-cloo...or-california/

Hollywood actor George Clooney is reportedly planning to run for governor of California within the next four years – an event that, if successful, could ultimately launch a campaign for the presidency.

According to the British tabloid newspaper the Daily Mirror, friends of the 53-year-old blockbuster movie star claim that Clooney is being wooed by Democrats hoping he’ll launch a long-speculated political career, with their sights set on the 2018 governor’s race. If Clooney agrees, he would likely start planning out the next steps after his September marriage to British human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin.

If Clooney manages to become governor of California, he would be following the same path as actors like Ronald Reagan (governor from 1967-1975) and Arnold Schwarzenegger (2003-2011). Reagan, of course, went on to win the presidency in 1980.
To Clooney’s friends, who went unnamed by the Mirror, the move would be a natural fit.

“George is hugely popular with the Democrats and where better a place to put him than as the Governor of California the home of Hollywood,” one friend told the newspaper. “It has always been a huge stronghold for the party and one that has a proven record for getting politicians in to the Oval office.”

What’s more, the actor’s friend said unlike Clooney’s past partners, Alamuddin – who served as the attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and is also a special envoy to the UN High Commissioner for Refugees – would act as a positive asset in public life.

“Now that Amal is by his side it has boosted his credentials even higher,” the friend said. “She is as far removed as some of the girls he has previously dated and possesses incredible intelligence that bodes well if she ever does become First Lady. It would certainly add a new meaning to the ‘special relationship’ between Britain and America.”

As noted by the Daily Mail, Clooney’s connections to the Democratic Party are strong and well-known. He has held fundraisers for liberal politicians, including one in 2012 in which attendees paid $40,000 each to join a dinner party where President Obama spoke. Clooney has also been invited to the White House to screen his films and is considered a friend by Obama.

Outside of Hollywood, Clooney is also known for his activism. He was arrested for civil disobedience outside of the Sudanese Embassy in Washington, DC, back in 2012, after groups gathered to protest Sudan’s president Omar al-Bashir for blocking aid and “provoking a humanitarian crisis.” He was detained for a few hours and released after paying a $100 fine.

Whether or not Clooney actually runs for any office remains to be seen, however. In 2012, he was asked about potentially running for president, but quickly shot the idea down.

"There's a guy in office who is smarter than anybody,” he said, referring to Obama. “I have no interest."

He would win president in the next election by the women vote alone.

I have no doubt he would win it if he ran. He speaks well, he's smart and he's good looking.

Sounds shallow, but a good portion of voters are shallow.

I think it depends a lot on how he does as governor. I can only hope he finds a way to **** things up at that level.

I can see why he'd be tempted. The the only thing that the current guy is good at is being a celebrity, and Clooney has that part pretty well nailed down.

I guess time will tell. Hey trust me he's about the last guy I would want to see in the WH. He would give your boy Barry a run for his money as the worst President that's ever set foot in the WH. Hey look at the bright side, it would allow you to get a new set of knee pads and if you send in a large enough contribution, old George may even autograph them before you put them to use.

He has been critical of Obama for being too conservative. It's a safe bet he would be worse~
