article imageCaroline Kennedy says George Clooney chose his first lady well

By Leo Reyes     Sep 29, 2014 in Entertainment
Caroline Kennedy thinks actor George Clooney is eyeing the US presidency and his recent, well-publicized wedding to top British lawyer Amal Alamuddin could be part of his plan to move over to the White House soon.
Kennedy said Clooney may have picked the talented lady lawyer as part of his possible presidential bid in 2020 or in 2024 US presidential elections.
Clooney has been in a number of relationships following his separation with his first wife, actress Talia Balsam in 1993. He dated or lived with at least nine women before his recent marriage to Alamuddin.
Despite his highly publicized relationship with several women, his sexual orientation has become a lingering issue that won't die down. Clooney denied he is gay and said the rumor isn't good for his friends in the gay community .
"The last thing you’ll ever see me do is jump up and down, saying, ‘These are lies!’ That would be unfair and unkind to my good friends in the gay community. "I’m not going to let anyone make it seem like being gay is a bad thing," he explained.
Kennedy said Clooney could have married any of those women but he chose Alamuddin for a greater reason.
"He could have married any of the others as those rumours have been around for years. I think she is picked for a greater reason. The others were trophy girlfriends but wouldn't have been taken seriously as a political asset. We shall see!," she said
Kennedy describes Alamuddin as "beauty and brains." "She will be a real asset to him politically," he added..
Digital Journal asked Kennedy about Clooney's chances of winning the presidential derby and she said his chances are good as any candidate.
"As good as anyone else, I imagine. He has been very political behind the scenes, fundraising and hosting political dinners. Plus he is very clued into what is going on in the world. He is very bright and very aware. His father was a very highly respected international journalist. So one thing he would not do is to take the US down an isolationist route. He is definitely an internationalist, like his Dad. And Amal is a confirmation of that." Kennedy said.
"I would be incredibly surprised if he didn't have his eye on the 2020 or 2024 Presidential race. He might well become the 'great hope' of the Democratic Party and the Republicans' worst nightmare scenario!," she added.
Alamuddin is a London-based attorney specializing in international, criminal, human rights and extradition law cases.
