Clooney Seeks Aid For Darfur

First, even men know that CLOONEY IS HOT...however, he also has heart, and a brain, which is why his latest efforts are being featured here. He was in Cairo, Egypt trying to secure some help for at least those who have been displaced in Darfur. Maybe America could do more there if our president did not have us wrongfully bogged down in Iraq. Clooney should seriously consider a run for the Senate...problem is, he'd have to take a SERIOUS cut in pay.

CAIRO, Egypt - George Clooney lobbied Wednesday for Egypt's help in getting protection for victims of Darfur's increasing violence.

The Oscar-winning actor met with Gamal and Suzanne Mubarak - the powerful son and wife of Egypt's president - and with Foreign Minister Ahmed Aboul Gheit in his campaign to bring relief to the war-torn region of western Sudan.

Clooney said he was focusing on trying to find some way to at least ensure protection for those who have been displaced in the fighting.

"We are still talking about all the problems in Darfur right now," Clooney said. "We are hoping to just constantly keep the conversation going on humanitarian issues, that's our big goal, trying to stay out of the political arena and just trying to find humanitarian issues."
