George Clooney political activity

Embracing the Darfur cause.

Probably inheriting his political acumen from his father, who is now an aspiring politician in Kentucky, Clooney has been involved in some political causes. He describes himself as liberal in this respect and has been outspoken in his political views. With respect to the current presidential race, Clooney has professed his support for Democrat Barack Obama.

Clooney is also one of the most vocal figures in the initiative Save Darfur. He has taken advantage of the resources available to him as a movie star and tried to increase awareness int his regard. His efforts were in fact lauded by the Nobel Peace Prize Laureates when they presented him with the Summit Peace Award in 2007, together with Don Cheadle.
