Baldwin Looking for Chance to Run (http://politicalwire.com/archives/2009/07/06/baldwin_looking_for_chance_to_run.html)

Actor Alec Baldwin spoke to Playboy (http://weblogs.newsday.com/news/local/longisland/politics/blog/2009/07/lis_alec_baldwin_cites_desire.html) about possibly running for political office:

Playboy: Will you run for office?

Baldwin: I'll put it this way. The desire is there; that's one component. The other component is opportunity. A law firm in a liberal Democratic bastion in Ohio state politics sent me a binder with a cover letter that read, "Mr. Baldwin, here's who we represent, the kinds of cases we handle, our credentials in Ohio state politics. We want you to move to Ohio and run for governor. We will launch your career."

Playboy: Could you live in Ohio?

Baldwin: I have sometimes thought I could move to New Jersey or Connecticut and run. I'd love to run against Joe Lieberman. I have no use for him. But it's all fantasy. I'm a carry-me-out-in-a-box New Yorker. Here, anything can happen. Who thought Eliot Spitzer would go down the way he did? Senator Hillary Clinton left to serve as secretary of state. Two of the biggest forces gone. Maybe Andrew Cuomo will run for one of their old seats. How much longer will Chuck Schumer stay as senator? After 2013 Bloomberg will be gone. What happens then?

Do I run for Congress on Long Island? What's Tim Bishop going to do? He represents my district. People get sick, die. They're offered lucrative deals and want to cash in and make money for their retirement. People misstep. Unfortunately, an opportunity for me may mean bad things for someone else. I don't wish that.

Would 30 Rock shoot around his availability? I don't think so.

Fred Thompson's part on Law and Order could be shot in a few weeks.

Franken is bad enough.:eek:

I think the tape of Baldwin calling his daughter a pig should be played repeatedly by the opposition during his run.;)

I hate that I was born in the same town that moron came from, ugh. I lived there for my first 8 years.
I wonder if I ever beat him up! :D
