George Clooney for President?

A recent survey according to Entertainment Weekly says that George Clooney is the #1 celebrity fit to be president.  He led the pack with 35% of the vote.

Interesting.  It goes without saying that as a native Kentuckian, I would be inclined to vote for the son of Nick Clooney.

George is one of the actors in Hollywood most identified with fighting for human rights, especially for the people of Darfur.  Clooney has also identified lately with films with a political theme.  Good Night and Good LuckSyrianaThe Ides of March.

It's hard to predict what would happen if he actually did run for the highest office in the land.  This country is too divided and Republicans, mainly those in the Tea Party wing, are trying to drag it further to the right.

Then there is the Hollywood factor.  How would that play nationwide?  We already saw what happened with California under the Governator.

The same survey also saw 67% of men saying they were tired of hearing about Justin Bieber.  I didn't vote but count me in to that statistic if you are so inclined to do so.  Similarly, 62% were tired of hearing about Kim Kardashian.  That's probably the last time that name gets mentioned in this neck of the woods.

What do you think?
