[Ed. – Hey, it worked for Ronald Reagan.]
He has conquered Hollywood and is smitten with his new fiancee , but George Clooney now has his eye on another challenge – politics.
The heart-throb, 53, is planning to launch his new career after he ties the knot with Brit lawyer Amal Alamuddin, 36, in September, following an eight-month romance.
George already counts President Obama as a friend and is a committed political activist.
Now he is looking to take on a more official role, and could even run for office.
A pal said: “He has big ambitions and aims to get into politics imminently.
“He wants to do more humanitarian work and hopes to join the Democrats’ 2016 election campaign.”
London-based barrister Amal, who represented WikiLeaks’ Julian Assange, is one of the world’s leading human rights specialists.
