Moore: Democrats should nominate "our Arnold" in '08
In New York to celebrate the New York Film Critics Cirlce award for Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore spoke to Hollywood Democrats like Nora Ephron (famous writer-director and ex-wife of Carl Bernstein) and Faye Dunaway, among others, telling them to expect Jeb Bush to run AND win in 2008.
But the biggest surprise from Moore came when he saidWho's our Arnold? [Republicans] run people who are stars. When we run people who are stars - rock star Bill Clinton, movie star John Kennedy - we win. Who wouldn't vote for Caroline Kennedy? Who wouldn't vote for Tom Hanks?"
Moore has been recently quoted pushing his Hanks idea, along with a possible Paul Newman candidacy. One Hollywood actor (and Democrat) who had showed interest in running for President was Warren Beatty, though that was some time ago. If Warren Beatty ran for president, he would have my vote. How could you turn down Clyde Barrow?
