Matt Damon

I Would NEVER Run

for Political Office

You'll never EVER see Matt Damon's name on an election ballot ... 'cause the actor tells TMZ he has NO desire to run for political office.

Damon is a super political guy -- he's been heavily involved with the Democratic party for a while  (though he's been railing pretty hard against President Obama for the past year).

But despite his strong political opinions, Damon says politics just ain't for him -- and as he left Madeo in Beverly Hills last night, MD told us he'd rather just stick with his day job.

Still, we gotta ask ...

Well, he certainly couldn't be any worse that the politicians we've seen lately.

He'd get my vote. It's too bad, MD seems to have a his head firmly planted on his shoulders and comes across as a sane, very intelligent realist...not a nitwit who thinks dinosaurs were walking around 6,500 years ago.

Run Matt run.

Just another left wing liberal Hollywood actor out to change the world. My advice is to stick to role playing and stay out of political office. These actors think because they played a politician in some movie qualifies them to play that role in real life, they think they are experts on every topic, and the uneducated movie ticket buyers fall for their crap.

Everybody says that until one day they just change their mind. I hope he never does though.

Matt Damon is a worthless piece of garbage.

He knows acting is a mindless profession, so he tries to act all smart by getting political, but is politics are down right stupid and dangerous.

Matt Damon should send his kids to public school. If you think that public schools are super, send your kids to them. Matt Damon does. He is sending his kids to private school means that he is a hypocrite. Matt, you are a GREAT ACTOR and a caring parent. Don't tell us to how to raise our kids! You act and be a good husband, father that you are.

That's great news Damon. Now can you promise to NEVER "star" in another movie, and then we'll all really be happy! The soapdish in my sink has more personality than you.

Why would anyone even think he should run for office! He's just some actor! No one even knows what he's really like. That's just some image that some publicist cooked up!

Before you asked him his favorite flavor of ice cream or whatever inane question you had, did you ask him how he can carry on so much in public about the importance of public schools while enrolling his kids in private? I somehow doubt that you did.

I'd vote for Matt, but only if it was his puppet from Team America that was running.
