Alec Baldwin has been interested in politics for a long time, and today both the Hollywood Reporter and the Daily say the current political climate has him seriously considering a run for office, and what better place to get his feet wet than as mayor of the fourth largest city on earth.

Alec Baldwin is considering a run for New York City mayor now that Rep. Anthony Weinermay pull out of the race due to the Weinergate-Twitter photo scandal, according to a new report.
"Alec said, ‘Hey, maybe this changes the race. The dynamics have shifted,'" a Baldwin pal told iPad newspaper The Daily. "The Democrats need a high-profile candidate, and Alec can fill that bill."
"I wouldn't rule it out," his rep, Matthew Hiltzik tells The Hollywood Reporter.
Baldwin, an active Democrat, has long mulled going into politics. He's also announced his last year on 30 Rock will be 2012, which would free up his schedule ahead of the 2013 mayoral elections.

I can't believe I even have to say this out loud, but being handsome and liking politics aren't qualifications to be mayor of New York. I'm cute as a button and like roller coasters, that doesn't mean I should be allowed to go to Six Flags and build one.
