Another actor in the White House?

Seen on the news last night: George Clooney and Don Cheadle met with Kofi Annan to discuss the Darfur crisis. Good for them; Darfur is a dire situation for sure, and although some of you may be skeptical about actors getting involved in such things, I figure that their celebrity could bring more awareness of what's going on there to some people, and maybe Clooney has an extra million or two lying around from a movie deal he could use to feed some folks over there.

The crusty old fellow I work nights with asks me, "What's George Clooney think he's doing, running for President?"

"Hell," I reply, "he'd probably win..."
