With his movie career fading into commercial and critical mediocrity and a wedding in sight, 53 year-old left-wing Democrat George Clooney is apparently ready to try politics. The Mirror reports that Clooney’s lovely fiancée, British attorney Amal Alamuddin, has convinced Clooney to launch a career in politics after their wedding. Apparently, this career-switch will begin in earnest during the 2016 election.
“Now he has Amal by his side it will give him more credibility to run for office,” someone identified as a Clooney “pal” told the Mirror.
In 2012, Clooney campaigned for President Obama and was arrested for protesting over the situation in Darfur.
Earlier this year, reports surfaced that Clooney launched into a drunken “hissy fit” after casino mogul Steve Wynn criticized President Obama.
