Here Comes ’08: Clooney Denies Obama Scoop

George Clooney issued a statement Friday night to clear up an OK! Weekly item that said that Barack Obama told him that he intends to run for President. Obama has said he’s thinking about running, so this would have been somewhat of a scoop for the magazine.

“I said I’ve talked to the senator and begged him to run,” Clooney said in his statement. “And I hope he does. There’s no news scoop from me. He’ll make up his mind on his own schedule.”
