Alec Baldwin Is the Latest Celeb Who May or May Not Run for President

Just think how hilarious the debates would be

Alec Baldwin is pretty good at being presidential. And by that I mean, he's pretty great at impersonating the current holder of that office on Saturday Night Live.

But it turns out that Baldwin's had dreams of running for public office for a while.

In a 2008 interview with 60 Minutes, Baldwin said it was a childhood dream of his to be a politician.

"There's no age limit on running for office, to a degree," he said at the time. "Something I might do, one day."

To further fuel the fire, Baldwin sent out a tweet on Friday which read, "If I run for a President, think of how entertaining the debates would be," which led many to wonder if Baldwin was actually joking.

In 2011, Baldwin even considered running for mayor of New York City, but he later said he changed his mind.

"I've lost my appetite," he explained on his podcast, Here's the Thing With Alec Baldwin. "Plus the people that are running for mayor — I know this is terrible — I look at them and I don't see myself in that crowd. They're like a guy on a date that you can tell he just can't wait to get his hand up your blouse before even the lights go out in the theater. They're all just so horny for it. Horny for their own ascension. Whereas for me, I've got a job now... I've got a good job."

Just because he lost his appetite to run for mayor, however, that doesn't mean he lost his appetite for the White House.
