Alec Baldwin may run for NYC mayor … but not in 2013

Don't forget to turn off your electronic devices before boarding a flight!

It seems Alec Baldwin keeps himself in the news every day, be it with Twitter comments or his political ambitions. When it comes to the latter, the “30 Rock” star finally gave some concrete answers to the New York Times.

Does he approve of New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg? Yes and no. He has “nothing against him,” but continues to be outspoken against his changing term limits.

“All the Bloomberg supporters look at me and say, ‘What do you got against Bloomberg?’” he said. “Well, I don’t have anything against Bloomberg, but there are term limits. The whole point is, whether you liked him or didn’t like him, he’s got to go.”

Does that mean he is running for mayor? Possibly, but not in 2013. Why not? For one, “30 Rock” prevents him. For another, he plans on going to school.

When he does run for office, is he afraid of the skeletons in his closet? That includes his ugly divorce from Kim Basinger, a nasty voicemail about his daughter Ireland and his often-newsworthy brothers.
It seems he is not. He remained confident that he would be able to weather criticism of his past behavior.

Of the people?

Baldwin says that living on Manhattan’s Upper West Side would help his campaign because it’s “more middle class.” Really?
“It is more real,” Baldwin told the Times. “There’s old people, it’s ethnic and it’s economically mixed. I am more comfortable living where it seems more middle class, and I have lived there deliberately.”
