    That is why I rose to change the patterns of politics for more transparent and human people like George Clooney to be able to choose politics without fear of the dirty and muddy waters of it or having to be a prostitute to the middlemen than a representative of the people! This refreshing dialogue of two famous actors and musicians Bono and Clooney who are having a dialogue being who they are and showing another dimension instead of being locked into one as our society is used to see the people. I shared my discovery that people are multidimensional and so is god and thus Jesus Christ and god are on and christianity that was laughed at for ever for having three gods can now say it is multidimensional god in the challis of man!

    With everything that's going on these days, don't these ridiculous celebrity lists seem trivial and childish?

    Get over yourselves! How can I take your concern for the world seriously when you both are so impressed with each other and yourselves... get over yourselves, and then I will believe you really want to help the world for the world's sake and not your own PR.

    I know that there's been some successful actor-politician transformations, however, the best one's in either party seem to be lawyer-politician. Maybe it has something to do with, say, legal expertise. I'd be curious as to how many politician-actor segues there are.
