just my 2 cents worth... if her last name was still Alamuddin, would she even be on the Met Gala's radar?????

I thought she was going back to work. What with this and the twins, how will she find the time?

George will be there, and Anna Wintour has staff.

Not sure how much the 'hosts' have to do. Who was it last year? Katy Perry? Maybe I should offer to help........... a lot of fun I imagine

Of course this is great publicity for Oceans 8 as well................

I can’t imagine co-hosting the Met Gala is all that demanding. Would think Amal could multitask being a mom while doing her work and take on what probably amounts to a speaking engagement. Lots of working women do it all the time.

I must say I thought the gossip about GEorge wanting the White House, was just that, dumb gossip....fake news.....

This is the very first thing that has stopped me in my tracks....made me think.....

I see no rhyme or reason for this.... none.....

Other than name exposure.... what will it seriously achieve.....

It does not sit easy.... the commitment/time to this! ....and, say the schools in Lebanon or the fight with ISIS.....

It has to be only one thing.....
A big name check for the brain dead....

Really?

Well it is a benefit for a charity.....so there is some purpose to it besides dressing up.

I think that guests often get invited to host , I think all Amal has to do is show up and smile and greet people.
It is for charity so that is a good thing.

Thank you Annemarie and Fava for your thoughts..... but I have failed to make myself clear.....Every year people “turn down” the opportunity to host, for all sorts of reasons.... it never Has been a given....People politely decline....

I very well know the charity aspect.... isn’t every dress up a fund raiser? .....

WHAT I am saying is IMO this is a game changer, knowing the above and how the Met is thought of.... There can be only ONE REASON that this is happening..... the Presidential race has started.....

Having Riri .... as co-host is clever.....but....

Seeing this unfold before my eyes... having read soooo many comments saying this is WHAT THE WHOLE MARRIAGE was leading up to (I thought those comments insane haha)..... it looks like the joke was on me.....

It’s a gut feeling ...... if my gut proves right, what does that say about the whole change of mind about marriage?....Did wiser people know better than us......Has the whole happy family malarkey been just a suitable backdrop to candidacy???

This is a gamble.... but an exceedingly well thought out, planned and actioned gamble....BUT a gamble non the less.....

I’ve drawn a line in the sand...I DO BELIEVE AT THIS POINT IT IS GAME ON GEORGE IS RUNNING......Mark my words!

I fail to see how Amal hosting the Met Gala has anything to do with a political campaign. I can tell you that if you ask 1 million Americans what the Met Gala even is, 99% of them do not know and would not follow it.  So how is that well-planned?  Given the current political climate in the US, Amal in a very expensive designer dress is probably one of the worst ways to approach a political campaign.  If "they" are planning this (which assumes Amal has little autonomy to make her own decision she loves fashion and wants to support this cause and Wintour and this has little to do with George), they would be better served by publicizing their public service and how in touch they are with ordinary Americans.  

  
Obviously you have an opinion, but I find it hard to believe anyone would give up a pretty great life for the constrictions of a political life--which are probably even worse than a celebrity one.  I think that would be a very foolish choice and I also don't think he would be good at it.  Sorry George.  I am recalling how he has reacted to hecklers about Nespresso, etc.  Did not handle it very well.  I agree with many of his positions, but that does not make him a policy maker or a good public servant.  So though I am a fan, I would not vote for him in a primary.

WWHS - I don't think George is going to run for President. There may be people who want him to run and are trying to talk him into it, but I don't think he's stupid enough to listen to them. If he does, he's too stupid to be President.

There are a lot of strikes against his candidacy:
     1. A lot of people hate him just because he's George Clooney and has the life they wish they had.
     2. A lot of people hate his political beliefs and the fact that he gives voice to them. After all, he's just an actor. He should keep his mouth shut about anything else.
     3. A lot of people feel that he is a member of the 1%, uber wealthy and often out of the country, and as such is out of touch with the problems of most Americans.
     4. Skeletons in his closet.
     5. His wife.

I could go on, but I'm depressing myself. I'd like to think that George would make a great President, but I think (if he did run and win) it would make him miserable. I think the life he's living now is just right - if only he could make a great movie!

Plus it is likely he and Amal would have to give up their humanitarian work and I think they both believe it is really important.  Could you have a president who is paying satellites to spy on other countries?  I wouldn't think so, but then a lot of things have become normalized in the last year.

I think the Clooneys can make a difference in the life of a lot of people who are suffering in the position they are in right now.  I suppose it is conceivable George could even give up making movies and concentrate entirely on his charity work--but I don't think so. I believe he craves that approval and will keep seeking the right project(s).

And yeah, buying a house in another country and then saying you might raise your kids there probably not a great way to appeal to US voters.

Thanks Lizzy and Favs.... but mark my words he IS running....I imagine it’s a done deal, bought and paid for.... Lizzy your points are all true and well made....similar points could have been made about U KNOW WHO, The Don....look what happened there....

These days people are conditioned to buy a brand.... Fiddly dee with The policies....They want a name and pictures loads of them(wedding pictures too).....

Why? You ask does the Met rankle me to this conclusion...simply Amal should have better things to do, Alexa Chung, a fashionista since a teenager maybe, but Amal, who was never pictured in fashion mags for her quirky style in her teens 20’s or 30’s until meeting George....no way....

Favs, you are right 90% of most people don’t know and frankly don’t care...but that’s the whole point....brand awareness brick by brick.... didn’t I see today EVEN more homage(brand awareness).....

I wouldn’t worry about the humanitarian arm.... just another brick in the wall....

WWHS - Maybe this has less to do with George's political aspirations and more to do with Amal deciding it's more fun to be a celebrity than a working lawyer. After all, she has the twins to care for and her teaching gig at Columbia Law - not to mention she and George have a deal not to be apart for more than a week. It must be hard to find time for an actual case load.

I haven't seen any where it has been stated Amal has given up her job. She is on maternity leave.  When she is
working unless it is a high profile case we don't see her . She has said herself that most of her work takes place privately with no attention, so we have no idea how much she works. She can also work from any of their homes which is good for her
now that she has the kids.

Yep annemarie. Can’t really see taking on this gig for the Met Gala is anything more than a fun aside from Amal’s career work. No reason to believe otherwise.

George isn’t running for office. He has stated it many times. And fava pretty much wrote what George has said many times. He can do more to make a difference through his own notoriety, financial support and humanitarian work than he can holding any government office. And he can continue to speak his mind ... which becomes a real problem if you run for elected office. I think that factor is really important to George.
