Despite the fact that his classmates in high school and college often chose him to lead them, John remembers himself as a seriously inept student.

Em mentions George Clooney and Alec Baldwin -- it's occurred to her that they might be heading into politics. Even so, John can't see himself running for public office or getting elected, unless maybe he wanted to be the Mayor of his hometown, Knoxville, Tennessee.

Very thoughtful and entertaining, as usual.

I don't think I could ever go into politics, although I do come from a family that is very politically oriented.

Thanks for being part of my weekend! I always look forward to what you two will talk about, and you always bring a smile to my face.

I think that John would be an excellent Mayor for Knoxville. You would have to leave the big city for the "laid-back lane". Wouldn't it be nice to just be there to enjoy the laid backidness though and maybe teach young actors instead? I believe that John has; as he said, always had leadership in his blood. Being an actor that's been successful is no small achievement and one that is valued; or, I think it should be and most of all by aspiring actors. It is just a thought that you may have not thought of? Only I would probably pull for someone to move to a city that I'm not from and have only ever visited... maybe? My campaign has begun; the one where I try to entice you to move closer to me; selfish though it is, his home town has earned a favorite place status with me and is a place up north that would consider living. Does that sound decisive enough for a political stance? Did I leave a way to steer myself in any direction and to evade any question; the creed of the politician? Thanks to James "Sunny Jim" White for the song title and song lyrics, (The Laidback Lane) and 10cc for "I'm so laid-back, I'm laid-out"; for the brain bump inspiration so early in the morning. sez Marcus
