George Clooney Declares His Love For Amal Alamuddin On Stage (AKA Further Evidence Of His Future Run For Public Office)

God, I am still SO ON TO YOU, George Clooney. While I’m sure the Cloons is totally, madly in love with fiancee Amal Alamuddin (why wouldn’t he be? She’s gorgeous, smart and accomplished, by all accounts) I’ve thought for awhile that his sudden embrace of long-term monogamy and the institute of matrimony (which he has long declared a disinterest in) has an ulterior motive — political power. I predicted a few months ago, shortly after Clooney and Alamuddin announced their engagement, that Clooney would at some point in the not-so-distant future declare his intent to run for public office, and that being married is part of his get elected strategy. And I stand by that! The American public prefers to vote for people who at least posture to have “traditional” values, like a stable family life, and George Clooney who parties with D-list actresses on his houseboat on Lake Como is less electable than George Clooney, devoted husband of a smarty-pants London lawyer. I’m not saying Clooney and Alamuddin aren’t a legit couple, I’m just suggesting Clooney is performing his love in a different way than he has before for a reason. I mean, dudebro has never been one to talk about his relationships or significant others, yet earlier this week, while on stage accepting a humanitarian award, Clooney gushed about his bride-to-be, declaring his love and being all “I can’t wait to be your husband” etc. etc. It’s totally sweet, don’t get me wrong, but mark my words, the Clooney Campaign has begun.
