Is George Clooney planning to move into politics after his wedding?

London, May 31 (ANI): George Clooney is planning to move into politics after his marriage to Brit lawyer Amal Alamuddin, according to reports.

A friend of the Academy Award winner said that the actor had big ambitions and aimed to get into politics imminently, the Mirror reported.

The pal added that the 53-year-old actor wanted to do more humanitarian work and hoped to join the Democrats' 2016 election campaign.

The friend further said that Clooney was thinking of how he could get more involved and now that he had Alamuddin by his side, it will give the actor more credibility to run for office. (ANI)

Mm. I think the humanitarian will come before the politics. Look who he's with. And he's always maintained he can achieve more from being outside politics than in.

But definitely a big force for Hillary and more heavily into international politics - in between the odd film of course.

Not unheard of that a movie star becomes an ambassador - but that's a way down the road I think

I don't believe it. I would like to say "he always said so" but now as he gets married I can not rely at the moment what he said in the past LOL

But I think he loves doing movies more then politics. I don't think he will do that. But I do believe that he will do more humanitarian work. He did already the first step by backing off from the United ambassador to have more freedom..... 

But politics I can not imagine he does that road....

And I don't think the Amal would give him more credibility to run for the office as the article claims. She is not american and defending at the moment those who America claims are trader to they country...so....But what do I know..

I voted Yes I have always thought that was the real agenda all along. Lets look at some of the Facts:-

George
It has long been suspected and suggested that George was leaning that way, regardless of his 'I've drank the bong water" etc comments.
Has/is very vocal on political issues
His father attempted to enter politics.

Amal
Amal and her family and her family are deeply entrenched in politics you only have to look at her family's history (experience needed there) plus her know how on International Law.
Has no perceived past.
Her father has been quoted as saying 'now the world knows who Amal Alamuddin is'.

If he is planning to go into Politics in the mainstream. I'm sorry but if he thinks that Amal is an asset to him he really is deluding himself there. At the risk of sounding prejudice Amal and her family have close ties to people that have and are very questionable, let alone some the people she represents, her family's religion will also play a part in what people think. As much as we like to believe that we are for the most part and fair minded there have been some atrocities committed that the world collectively have suffered. You only have look at what happened when Barrack Obama first became President and his fathers family and still to this day is alluded too. People are scared of what is happening in the world in the name of religion (all religions), and right or wrong.

Amal is no asset to George but George is and asset to Amal now " now that every one knows who Amal Alamuddin is".

Not totally into politics, I mean I dont see him running for office. But I see him more vocal in his support and more into his humanitarian works. I dont think who his future wife is a coincidence. His goals has changed and he wants to be taken seriously.

George Clooney planning to move into POLITICS after marriage to Amal Alamuddin
May 30, 2014 22:30 By Halina Watts
He has conquered Hollywood and is smitten with his new fiancee , but George Clooney now has his eye on another challenge – politics.

The heart-throb, 53, is planning to launch his new career after he ties the knot with Brit lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, in September, following an eight-month romance.

George already counts President Obama as a friend and is a committed political activist.

Now he is looking to take on a more official role, and could even run for office.

A pal said: “He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently.

"He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats’ 2016 election campaign.”

London-based barrister Amal, who represented WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, is one of the world’s leading human rights specialists.

And it seems she has spurred on Gravity star George to step up his ambitions.

The pal said: “George is thinking of how he can get more involved.

"Now he has Amal by his side it will give him more credibility to run for office.”

The actor rallied for Mr Obama at the 2012 election and was arrested outside the Sudanese Embassy after a planned protest over Darfur.

That year he ruled out running for president and said: “There’s a guy in office who is smarter than anybody.

"I have no interest.”

But a week is a long time in politics – and two years is almost an eternity .

The more likely scenario is that it's Amal who has the political ambitions for herself in the UK.

I'm not sure George's skin is tough enough for politics. If he thinks his father got destroyed when he ran for office, that'll look like a walk in the park compared to how the Republicans would rip him apart if he chose to run at some point in future. He has said before he doesn't deal well with criticism, that he doesn't like reading it in print, and that's all he'd get if he got into the political arena. He'd be better off staying on the fringes of it all. Would give him more freedom to say and do as he pleases.

George won't be going into politics and being married to Amal wouldn't help him get there either.

As to her ambitions, well being married to George isn't going to be a help for her if she decides to go into politics even if in the UK.

George will continue to work FOR candidates and will focus on his humanitarian work but his past would never allow him to run for any office because there is nothing nastier than a political campaign. Didn't any of you folks see The Ides of March? :-)

Sorry, but there's no way he could successfully run for office in the US, unless it was for mayor of LA or governor of California. Even then it would be a tough sell because he's so outspokenly liberal. And believe me, Amal would not be an asset.

Amal wouldn't have to run for an office. She could have her eye on an appointed position, which might be right up her alley.

I would vote for him, if only I had USA citizenship.  Very Happy 

As to the question...hmmmm....I'm clueless because he is changing. He is not a free artistic spirit who is adamantly against marriage for decades. He is about to get married.
Now....he did say many times that he would never run for office, but in the light of his revolutionary change regarding marriage, perhaps he would change his views about politics too.

If he were to go into politics he would have to end his association with the SSP. He would no longer be a private citizen taking "tourist pictures" from the air, he would be a politician spying on a foreign government. I really don't see him running for office. I think he will be involved in other ways as he has been for some time.

Lorna's right all the GOP has to do is point to one of these sites to show the women etc. never mind what they will do to George the poor es's. George wouldn't even openly campaign for PBO because he didn't want to hurt his chances. As far as Amal there is a lot of mistrust of her yet.

It seems to me we're forgetting something - if you represent an area of the US in government, you have to BE in the US. You can't serve via email or drop in when you have some free time.

Until his engagement he spent most of his time traveling around the world for films, ads, humanitarian work and fun. He was rarely home.

When/if he marries Amal this will still be true, but it seems "home" will be in England. You can't run for office in the US if you don't live here, and even if you could, nobody would vote for an absentee representative.

I think he's looking to expand his humanitarian work. IMO US political office is off the table - too impractical and restricting for him.

I'm thinking that any move into politics that he makes wouldn't be as an elected representative for all of the reasons mentioned above.

Aren't there other, sideline, positions he could fill? An advisor? A special representative? Some sort of envoy? When you look at everyone on a governmental pay roll, only a tiny portion of them are elected representatives. Everyone else is hired in.

Katie - That's what I've been thinking. More an expansion of what he's been doing with SSP and Not On Our Watch than any elected position. Maybe he'll use his connections to support candidates and issues in the US, but I can't see him holding any elected office.

I said from the beginning that this relationship is fake and it's just a strategy for GC entering politics, now the reviews on it are increasing. Today here in my country, many sites said that he wants to run for president of the United States. Amal is the perfect wife for a presidential candidate, the passion of his life is and always will be Waldo Sanchez heheh

If George was making an effort toward an appointed position or ambassadorship, why resign his post at the UN?  Wouldn't that have helped his efforts?  Still don't understand why he resigned so quickly after the engagement became known ( both occurred on a Monday, yes?).

Pigpen- Maybe it wasn't so much connected to the engagement as the expansion of SSP. Maybe there was some kind of conflict with what he wants to do with SSP and UN policy or regulations. - Just considering options for why he quit.

Think you're right, Atalante and Lizzy.

I have a feeling the Messenger of Peace role had its own UN restrictions if His Nibs wanted to investigate corruption in for example say CAR or DRC, as a result of SSP imaging.........the UN may have the same 'spying' restrictions legally as a sovereign country, whereas as an individual he cannnot be accused of that.........

Bull! she is not the perfect wife for a presidential candidate.  Since she is not an US citizen and is of middle eastern descent and muslim background, she would only be a liability.  Not to mention her representation of some reprehensible characters.  No one should be foolish enough to think she would be any kind of asset in a major campaign for elected office.  And don't get me started on George's own liabilities as a candidate......

Our deluded poster aside, is it the prevailing view outside the US that he will run for office? Is the international media promoting the idea?

It's getting coverage here, too, but only in the sense that they're asking "Will GC go into politics next?", and it's mostly the entertainment media that's giving it attention. I think anyone who gives the idea serious thought realizes that it's not a workable proposition.

Oh, come on, guys. It's perfectly reasonable for a barely-educated Hollywood actor with a reputation as a hard-drinking serial ladykiller and heartbreaker, when he decides to give up his freedom as a rich, free-spending, globetrotting, outspoken citizen to run for office, to make it his first order of business to marry a much younger, fundamentalist Muslim-descent lawyer who has defended an enemy of this country -- especially after witnessing the absolute vitriol still directed, after 6 years, at the African-American President of the United States who happens to have a name of Arab origin.

Makes sense to me. I don't think for a minute that George Clooney running for an elected position with a wife named Amal Alamuddin would be like open-mike night at the American Xenophobe Café.

Makes sense to me ( wink). Just to be a trouble maker, should we assume he will cease to be a hard drinking, lady killer, free spending, globe trotting dude just because he's supposed to be getting married.  Playing devil's advocate, how many Hollywood husbands, who are used to getting anything they want, are 100% by the book true and faithful.  Yeah, I know I'm opening a major can of worms here, but are we convinced/dreaming our boy is doing a 180 degree change and becoming the poster boy for true and loyal??  He's GEORGE.  maybe in the beginning he'll do the choir boy routine, but 1-2 years from now.....? Just my twisted opinion.  Or maybe I've been reading too many of Angie's posting. 

Regarding the political hoo ha.. when Charlie Rose talks about it on his program, then I consider giving it some serious consideration.


PS... please don't yell at me too bad when you write your rebuttals!  Crying or Very sad

It's not out of the realm of possibilities. He does, after all, have a Y chromosome.

Way2Old - Beautifully said! I only disagree with "barely educated". That's a little harsh. There's more than one kind of education. He's a smart man and he's had exposure to the world in a way most of us will never experience. As a teacher I honestly believe we learn as much from life lessons as we do from books - if not more.

Pigpen - Thanks for the laugh! We're on the same page.  10 out of 10

Yeah, Lizzy, you're right. A bit of hyperbole to make a point. Compared to the law degrees and Ivy League educations that seem to impress so much of the electorate, escaping from college with a bachelor's might not impress a lot of people.

I'd much rather have someone in a leadership position who has experienced
the cultures of the world... as opposed to, say, a guy so proud to be a Texan-American that his only travels before becoming President were probably south of the border to score cocaine.

Way2Old - Just thought of another bonus of NOT being Ivy League educated -You're not part of the "old boys" network with connections to big business and politics-as-usual. Allows for independence of action and thought.

But Lizzy, he is part of the old boy network- it's just Hollywood version.  That guy pulls a lot of clout in his own arena.
