George Clooney Coy About Politics

Crusading actor George Clooney refused to rule out running for political office yesterday–but wouldn’t confirm the ongoing speculation either.

Speaking alongside California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger at the launch of a new initiative to halt the genocide in the Sudan, Clooney skillfully deflected questions about his career ambitions.

When probed about standing for office, the modest star simply said, “Believe me, you don’t want me in politics. That’s a bad idea.”

Later, when grilled about his thoughts on people wearing T-shirts urging him to run for presidency in 2008, Clooney added, “I think they’re probably kidding.”
