Since all eyes are set on the political scene these days, we can\u2019t help but imagine a parallel universe where the famous politicians of America stepped down only to be replaced by prominent celebrities. Chaos would probably ensue, but it\u2019s an interesting thought to reflect upon. Here\u2019s a list of 21 celebrities we think would make darn good politicians and maybe even presidents! 1. Sylvester Stallone vipflash \/ Shutterstock.com One of the most popular action movie hunks of all time, Sylvester Stallone entered the world of showbiz in the \u201970s, showing off his incredibly muscular body and ability to act like the ultimate badass on the big screen. He rose to fame with his role in the popular film series Rambo, portraying John Rambo, a soldier of the United States army. He is also famous for his portrayal of Rocky Balboa in the Rocky film series. Stallone is a person who understands leadership and deals with all matters in life with a firm hand and stout determination. He\u2019s a strong Republican and even had the honor to meet Ronald Reagan in 1985. He received high praise for the inspiration Rocky Balboa provided to the US army. Straightforward, determined and disciplined, the traits every politician should master before engaging in paper wars. 2. Clint Eastwood Randy Miramontez \/ Shutterstock.com Just imagine Clint Eastwood in a suit, giving an impressive speech with his raspy voice, getting things done his way and leading the nation toward prosperity and blissfulness. It really isn\u2019t that hard to picture, especially when you take Clint\u2019s charisma into account. Everybody\u2019s favorite cowboy is well-known as a hard worker and somebody who doesn\u2019t run away from a challenge. In 1992, Eastwood acknowledged that his political views amount to something between the ideas of Milton Friedman and Noam Chomsky, adding that this kind of view would make for a worthwhile presidential ticket. He\u2019s an educated man who\u2019s seen a lot in life and we feel like he would definitely be able to do the right things behind a desk, given the right amount of power. Also, can you imagine him saying \u201cGo ahead, make my day\u201d to his political opponents? It would be the best thing ever. 3. Jon Stewart Featureflash \/ Shutterstock.com There\u2019s something about people who have mastered the ancient art of satire that makes us believe they would be fine leaders. After all, if that person makes people laugh with their comedic portrayal of the current state of the country, that means that they must be doing something right. Jon Stewart has been making people laugh their butts off for 16 years by doing exactly that. As the host of The Daily Show, Stewart was always well versed in the world\u2019s latest events, especially those concerning the political scene. He was up-to-date with everything going on and, even though he was joking most of the time, he showed that he had a rather interesting point of view. In fact, there are thousands of Stewart\u2019s fans that hope he will eventually move from TV to the oval office \u2013 the \u201cJon Stewart for President\u201d Facebook page currently has over 17,000 likes! 4. George Clooney The Image Worx \/ Shutterstock.com When it comes to winning the presidential elections, a lot of modern-day politicians tend to forget that they have to be likable to run the country. It kind of goes like this: 1) Likability is an incredibly important factor. 2) George Clooney is one of the most likable people in Hollywood. 3) Do you really need step 3? Clooney was also considered Hollywood\u2019s most eligible bachelor until he married human rights lawyer Amal Alamuddin and with good reason! Just take a look at his long and impressive acting career, as well as his long and impressive history of capturing the hearts of millions of women around the world. He\u2019s reportedly one of the kindest people in showbiz and in 2014, the New York Daily News even went as far as to say that Clooney could easily fit the role JFK left. 5. Tina Fey s_bukley \/ Shutterstock.com You know, it\u2019s not uncommon to see grumpy and overly serious politicians yelling at each other on TV. In fact, Obama is one of the first modern-day presidents to realize how important it is that people see a friendly, smiling face instead of a face devoid of all emotions. Basically, a good sense of humor is essential to any position of power and there\u2019s no one better to make the entire country laugh than comedian\/writer Tina Fey. Fey is best-known for her versatile skills as a humorist, although she\u2019s no stranger to politics. Millions of people have seen her impersonation of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin because of two reasons \u2013 it was hilarious to the point of spitting your beverage and it was pretty close to the real deal. 6. Oprah Winfrey Joe Seer \/ Shutterstock.com The host of one of the most popular talk shows in the world is one of the most powerful media moguls in American history and she has dwelled in the world of politics before. She\u2019s got the posture, she\u2019s got the wits, she\u2019s got the brawn. Also, her fiery temperament is not to be taken lightly and most importantly, she has years and years of experience in front of the camera. Additionally, her candidacy would generate a whole heap of support among African-American voters, as well as females all around the country. That would mean she would be the second black president to run the United States and we can\u2019t help but wonder if it would work out. Oh, and let\u2019s not forget that Oprah\u2019s very, very deep pockets could easily finance her campaign. 7. Morgan Freeman Everett Collection \/ Shutterstock.com Being, without a doubt, one of the most outspoken and opinionated people in Hollywood, actor Morgan Freeman has proven over the years that he doesn\u2019t have a problem with publicly sharing his opinion, no matter how controversial it might be. Let\u2019s not forget 2012, when Freeman said that he did not believe Barack Obama should be considered the first black president of the United States since he only has one black parent.\u00a0Millions were infuriated by this comment, but Freeman remained completely unbothered \u2013 a valuable skill for any man or woman willing to run for office. What\u2019s more, he has one of the most soothing voices anyone\u2019s ever heard and a charming and charismatic personality that will appeal to pretty much anyone. 8. Stephen Colbert Featureflash \/ Shutterstock.com Comedian and talk show host Stephen Colbert rose to fame as a mock news correspondent on Comedy Central\u2019s The Daily Show before he got a chance to host his own spin-off The Colbert Report. He received acclaim in 2014 when he announced that he would be replacing David Letterman as host of CBS\u2019 Late Show. Colbert is notable as being one of the most prominent political satirists around and where there\u2019s good satire, there\u2019s also a good understanding of how things work. In fact, in 2008, he even announced that he was running for US presidency and many Americans genuinely believed in his plan to bring \u201ctruthiness\u201d to the country. Sadly, he didn\u2019t make it to the White House, but we\u2019re certain he would be a great president. 9. Angelina Jolie Denis Makarenko \/ Shutterstock.com Let\u2019s be honest, we need gorgeous and charming women on the political scene and Angelina Jolie is definitely gorgeous beyond belief and as charming as it gets. More importantly, Angelina has already shown that she has some basic insight on how matters are handled when it comes to politics. Even though her political stance has left a lot of people bewildered, Jolie has become one of Hollywood\u2019s most famous do-gooders. Angelina doesn\u2019t have a problem with standing up for a good cause and she has been to all four corners of the world in an attempt to make our planet a better place. She even openly criticized Barack Obama in 2014, showing that she\u2019s not afraid to openly express her opinion. Let\u2019s not forget that she said that she was open to a career in politics. 10. Sandra Bullock aspen rock \/ Shutterstock.com Speaking of gorgeous and charming women, you won\u2019t find a more amicable presidential candidate than Sandra Bullock. As we\u2019ve seen in the case with Hillary Clinton, it\u2019s paramount to have a deep connection with the general public. Well, Sandra Bullock has managed to warm the hearts of all Americans for years by being one of the most likable on-screen personas and off-screen philanthropists. It doesn\u2019t matter what it\u2019s about \u2013 the Haiti earthquake, the Japanese tsunami, the Katrina Hurricane \u2013 Sandra Bullock will be there to lend a helping hand if she can. She has a long history of helping people, not just in her own country, but also across international waters. This type of spirit, determination, and commitment are what make foreign diplomats pay attention and Bullock\u2019s influence and charisma would be hard to ignore in the political scene. 11. Jay-Z JStone \/ Shutterstock.com Most hopeful immigrants have heard about \u201cThe American Dream,\u201d although most of them come to realize that it should be called \u201cThe American Hustle.\u201d In that respect, Jay-Z has quite a lot of experience, seeing as how he\u2019s a born and bred New Yorker from the School of Hard Knocks. It might be true that his past transgressions go just a tad bit beyond smoking a little Mary Jane, but as soon as he got his foot in the door, he became a modern mogul of the music industry. As the co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records and the founder of Roc Nation, there probably isn\u2019t a person in the US who hasn\u2019t heard about Jay-Z. In the world of politics, popularity equals power. Jay-Z is a highly renowned entrepreneur with a stunningly vast reach across the entertainment industry \u2013 and let\u2019s not forget that he\u2019s married to Beyonc\u00e9! 12. Leonardo DiCaprio Celebrity Dirt Leonardo DiCaprio was born and raised in Los Angeles, managing to work his way from the bottom to the top using nothing but his charm, patience and, of course, natural talent. You could easily say that Leonardo\u2019s the quintessential \u201cpretty boy\u201d of Hollywood who transcended his image from pretty boy to \u201csuccessful man\u201d through wise casting choices. While doing so, he lent his financial and political support to raise awareness for global warming and the Wildlife Conservation Society, earning more popularity points. It\u2019s common to associate DiCaprio\u2019s image with someone who\u2019s dating supermodels, but he\u2019s actually a man whose concerns extend far beyond the luxuries of fame and fortune. He\u2019s a renowned philanthropist who speaks through his actions. 13. Dwayne Johnson Featureflash \/ Shutterstock.com Here\u2019s the thing about Dwayne \u201cThe Rock\u201d Johnson: you might mistake him for the average Hollywood hunk who\u2019s all brawn and no brains and nobody would judge you for thinking so. However, the truth is that he\u2019s actually quite easy to root for. You might say he\u2019s one bad dude in the best possible way. He could easily land the fanboy vote, seeing as he\u2019s arguably the biggest WWE star of all time, as well as a respected Hollywood personality \u2013 far more than your average steroid-pumped bald-headed wrestler in search of a couple of dollars. The Rock IS filthy rich, don\u2019t get us wrong, but to achieve such international acclaim as a wrestling star, you need to possess a certain amount of wits and charisma \u2013 both of which Dwayne Johnson has in ample amounts. He also has a background in criminology, which would probably help him amass millions of followers. 14. Matt Damon s_bukley \/ Shutterstock.com Matt Damon, the ass-kicking star of the Bourne franchise, may have a pretty face, but what many people don\u2019t know is that he attended Harvard University in the late 80\u2019s and early 90\u2019s. What they also might not know is that he began writing Good Will Hunting during the time, which is not something to be overlooked so easily. Today, Damon is a legit Hollywood mogul and continues to drive his energy toward fighting destruction and disease around the world. With the help of his fellow Ocean\u2019s 11 co-stars, he founded the Not On Our Watch Project. He\u2019s also the man behind the H20 Africa Foundation. You might say he\u2019s a well-rounded actor, but more importantly, he\u2019s a well-rounded human. 15. Kelsey Grammer s_bukley \/ Shutterstock.com\u00a0 Kelsey Grammer is one of the few celebs who decided to side with the Republican Party and openly support them. He would definitely shake up the establishment if he were to follow through with his political ambitions. Apart from the obvious fame achieved through his entertainment career, Grammer has seen tragedy and lived through personal heartbreak that many Americans can relate to \u2013 in 1975, his sister was raped and murdered by spree killer and rapist Freddie Lee Glenn. Additionally, Frasier producer David Angell, who was a good friend of Grammer, passed away during the 9\/11 attacks. We all know how much the common folk love tragedy and Grammer definitely wouldn\u2019t be the first person to score some political points out of pity (even though he has never expressed any desire to do so, mind you, this is all purely hypothetical). Grammer has deep connections within the Republican Party, although his personal history of substance abuse might cause some skepticism during election time. 16. Michael Moore Featureflash \/ Shutterstock.com The American documentary filmmaker, screenwriter, author, journalist, actor and left-wing political activist famous for cult releases such as Bowling for Columbine and Fahrenheit 9\/11 apparently has a strong interest in American politics. To be precise, Michael Moore doesn\u2019t agree with pretty much anything that\u2019s going on. He even used the Academy Awards as an opportunity to openly express his opposition to the 2003 invasion of Iraq, much to the dissent of the bulk of conservative-minded members of the audience. Many would agree that all we need is strict opposition and if Moore would ever make his way to the Oval Office, he would finally have a chance to put his money where his mouth is. The problem is that he\u2019d probably find solving the nation\u2019s problems a lot harder when you\u2019re the man in charge than when you\u2019re editing a movie about it, but still. 17. Alec Baldwin Albert H. Teich \/ Shutterstock.com Apart from being famous for his portrayal of Jack Donaghy on the NBC sitcom 30 Rock, Alec Baldwin is well-known for his outspoken opinions. He has openly stated on numerous occasions that he would consider running for office. He is a dedicated Liberal, both in vocal and financial terms \u2013 since 1989, he has donated more than $144,000 to liberal candidates and committees. That\u2019s more money than an average American would make in three years. Baldwin even considered attempting to run for New York City\u2019s mayor in 2013, but ultimately decided that he would have more success as an actor. Now that 30 Rock is over, it might be the perfect moment for Baldwin to clean the dust off his political ambitions and think about running for a chair in the office. 18. Tom Cruise 360b \/ Shutterstock.com American actor and filmmaker Tom Cruise has been nominated for three Academy Awards and won three Golden Globe Awards. He engaged in acting when he starred in the 1981 film Endless Love. After that, Cruise went on to become one of the most prominent modern-day actors around. If popularity points wouldn\u2019t be enough, let\u2019s not forget that Tom Cruise is actually highly ranked in the Church of Scientology and that the current leader David Miscavige was even Cruise\u2019s best man on both of his weddings \u2013 with Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes. As the most famous Scientologist in the world, there\u2019s no doubt that Cruise is indeed a powerful man and power is a weapon not to be messed with in the world of politics. He has the charm, the money, the looks, the wits and the background to back him up. In fact, he even once admitted to being open to a position in the office. Here\u2019s what he said: \u201cIf f\u2013ing Arnold (Schwarzenegger) can be governor, I could be president. marcello farina \/ Shutterstock.com 19. Ben Affleck Whether you like him or not, Ben Affleck is a popular name in Hollywood. His career started when he landed his groundbreaking role in the Academy Award-winning movie Good Will Hunting and spiraled out of control with roles in movies such as Armageddon and Shakespeare in Love. His career suffered a rapid decline after he starred in Daredevil but Ben returned to the spotlight when he co-produced and acted in the movie Argo, earning a Golden Globe for best director and the 2013 Oscar for best picture.\u00a0The next Batman actor has long been the subject of speculation whether he should make a political run. Affleck is an outspoken Democratic donor and activist and has made occasional trips to Washington to testify on Capitol Hill. Even his wife Jennifer Garner explained that Ben feels like he can do more good for people with the help of politics, albeit outside the system. However, she did add that she wouldn\u2019t be surprised if he went into politics and there probably isn\u2019t a person that knows him better than her. 20. Howard Stern s_bukley \/ Shutterstock.com Let\u2019s be perfectly honest here, a good politician has to be a good spokesperson \u2013 it\u2019s a battle of words most of the time, so if you don\u2019t have advanced rhetorical skills, you\u2019ve pretty much lost before you even began. Howard Stern is arguably one of the coolest people in the world and has successfully led the popular Howard Stern Show for 30 years. The SiriusXM radio host shouldn\u2019t be too surprised if voters decided to pick him in the future. Back in 1993, Stern ran as a Libertarian in New York\u2019s gubernatorial race and added that he was \u201cdead serious\u201d about it at the time. However, he withdrew his candidacy overwhelmed by the vagueness of bureaucracy. Fortunately, that wasn\u2019t the end of it. Former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura said he would love to have Stern as a running mate in the 2016 presidential bid. 21. Clay Aiken s_bukley \/ Shutterstock.com Back in the days when American Idol was a show so popular that its contestants often became huge celebrities, Clay Aiken was the runner-up of Season 2. Naturally, he enjoyed a moderately successful music career but afterward shifted his attention to politics and activism in the LGBT community. The openly gay Aiken ran for Congress representing North Carolina in 2014 and actually managed to win the Democratic primary. Even though he lost the seat to Republican incumbent Renee Elmers in the general election later that year, there were many who agreed that Aiken managed to show an incredible amount of political aptitude for someone who has never dwelled in the political seas. Imagine what he would be able to do if someone were to give him a year in the office. Who knows? Source:\u00a0Celebrity Dirt So who could you see, from this list, as POTUS?
