George Clooney To Ditch Acting For Politics?Is he a President in the making?

George Clooney is allegedly considering a major career move - jumping ship from acting to politics, with a view to possibly becoming a future president.

US tabloid Star quotes a source as saying the 'Descendants' actor has had many an offer from politicians about joining them, and his arrest last week for protesting human rights violations has fuelled his appetite to make a difference to the country.

George has joked about his "nice arrest"

"[He] has a real interest in politics and an innate need to accomplish more than any present politician is doing," it is claimed.

"It’s a well-kept secret within his camp that George has been approached about running for office by many people in politics."

George's father Nick ran for office 'back in the day', but the man himself is actually quoted late last year by Gossip Cop as saying that he, erm, has no interest in making a similar move.

"I have a very good life and I have a very comfortable existence. If I want to dip my toes in issues involved in politics — like I’m talking about Sudan or Darfur… then I can, and I’m happy to do it and don’t have to compromise as a politician. So I find it to be much nicer where I am."

No sooner posited than denied:

“Clooney For President?” reads a headline from Star, which claims “George Clooney could be planning to relocate — straight to the White House.”

A source for the mag says the actor, who was arrested last week for protesting human rights violations outside the Sudanese Embassy in D.C., “has a real interest in politics and an innate need to accomplish more than any present politician is doing.”

The insider adds, “It’s a well-kept secret within his camp that George has been approached about running for office by many people in politics.”

While that very well may be true, the actor himself has said numerous times he has NO interest in becoming a politician.

In the fall, Clooney revealed why he would never want to run for office like his father, Nick, explaining, “I have a very good life and I have a very comfortable existence. If I want to dip my toes in issues involved in politics — like I’m talking about Sudan or Darfur… then I can, and I’m happy to do it and don’t have to compromise as a politician. So I find it to be much nicer where I am.”

A Clooney source tells Gossip Cop his stance on running for public office has not changed since then.

I agree that he can make more of a "noise" with his concerns as a citizen and NOT a politician.

Well I guess the rags are tired of talking about when G&SK are going to have babies (since they're obviously not getting married) and so need to create another way to get G followers to waste money (and trees) buying their rubbish. Can't they find a more productive way to fill their papers? Do the "articles" at least accompany good pics of G?
