Following a report in a British-owned celebrity magazine that had Clooney saying that Illinois Senator Barack Obama would indeed be tossing his hat into the 2008 presidential ring, the actor has asked his rep to personally confirm that he does not own a crystal ball.
“I said I’ve talked to the senator [Barack Obama] and begged him to run, and I hope he does,” Clooney said in a prepared statement from his rep. “There’s no news scoop from me. He’ll make up his mind on his own schedule.”
Is America ready for Barack? I can see the Republicans cooking up negative ads on Barack smoking rocks in college and his middle name being “Hussein”. It may be too many hypocritical gay republicans for this trick to work in 2008 .
