    Alec Baldwin interested in congressional run

    Alec Baldwin interested in congressional run

    Emmy Award winner Alec Baldwin is eyeing a post-acting career that could take him off a Hollywood soundstage into the halls of Congress.

    Baldwin, who currently stars in the NBC comedy "30 Rock," told Playboy magazine that he is seriously considering running for Congress. But he acknowledged his opponents would have plenty of fodder to use against him.

    "I'll put it this way," he told the magazine. "The desire is there; that's one component. The other component is opportunity."

    A native New Yorker, Baldwin said he has been approached by an unnamed Democratic law firm who wanted him to run for governor of Ohio, and he has also considered moving to New Jersey or Connecticut to run for office. "I'd love to run against Joe Lieberman," Baldwin said of the Independent Democratic senator who is no favorite of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party. But Baldwin dismissed the idea, saying "It's all fantasy."
    I'd rather be able to like Alec on 30 Rock, it's one of my favorites.

    Actors always make good politicians, since both groups lie for a living.

    I thought he would eventually get into politics. I'm sot sure if he'd be good at it or not, but he can't be any worse than who's in there now. Although, the biggest lack of most politicians i their lack of connection with average americans. I highly doubt Baldwin would have that either, but who knows.
