The Obama administration has seen some unlikely celebrity allies rub shoulders with the political elite, yet the recent encounter between Secretary of State John Kerry and Snoop Lion, aka Snoop Doggy Dogg, aka Snoopzilla, might be the best yet. The two exchanged words during a White House reception held for Kennedy Centre honourees, with the exchange ending in a fist bump between the two, an event that has caused the internet to go into meltdown mode.

Like we needed any more convincing that Snoop is a Boss

In the inaudible video, posted by Snoop on to his Instagram page, the two are seen involved in discussion, laughing with each other and slapping each other's shoulders, with their talk ending in a fist bump. Kerry's wife, Teresa Heinz Kerry, is stood next to the pair, chatting with other guests, whilst the two men engage each other in an animated chat. It's occasions and chance meetings like these that is why cellphone cameras are a godsend!

Will Ben Affleck Run For Massachusetts Senator Seat?


Ben Affleck Hillary Clinton John Kerry Barack Obama

Ben Affleck may be playing down rumors that he’s planning to run for senate but that hasn’t stopped the gossip. The Argo director was recently in Washington to discuss the issues of violence plaguing Congo and when asked about his political ambitions, told the Politico blog “That’s not what I’m here to talk about. I’m here to talk about the role we can play in making the Eastern Congo a better place.” Playing down the rumors, then, but certainly not denying them.

Those rumors suggest that Affleck could be a potential candidate for senator in Massachusetts. John Kerry is widely believed to be replacing Hillary Clinton as secretary of state, according to Politico and if that happened, that Massachusetts seat would be up for grabs. Alec Gerlach, John Kerry’s spokesman reportedly declined the opportunity to discuss Ben Affleck’s political ambitions. He did, however, confirm that Affleck and Kerry planned to meet, along with other members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, which Kerry chairs.

During his testimony, Ben Affleck urged President Barack Obama to take action over the plight of Congo. “Resolving the cycle of violence does not necessarily require a significant new financial investment by the United States or U.S. boots on the ground. It does, however, require American political leadership — moral leadership even — to bring the parties together to address the larger sources of instability in the region… I may be naive, but I believe that our actions in foreign policy represent our values as a country — they represent who we are as a people.” It remains to be seen whether or not Ben Affleck will ditch his movie career in favor of a life in politics but those rumors certainly seem to be gaining substance.

President Ben Affleck? Argo Star Hints At Political Ambitions

Ben Affleck has responded to speculation that he is considering running for Senate, providing John Kerry's seat opens up. Several names have been mentioned for the possible vacancy including Scott Brown and Mike Capuano, though Democrat Affleck has also been linked with a run. He would need 10,000 certified signatures to enter the race, and didn't exactly deny the rumors when quizzed by CBS' Bob Schieffer this week.

Kerry's position in the Senate would open up should he become Secretary of State, and Affleck said, "One never knows. I'm not one to get into conjecture," when asked whether he would be interested in the job. The Argo director added, "I do have a great fondness and admiration for the political process in this country. It's a big deal for me to come down here and be on your show that I've watched so much, but I'm not going to get into speculation about my political future." Numerous celebrities, including George Clooney and Alec Baldwin have hinted at political aspirations, though Affleck would arguably be the most popular of the three should he run as a Democrat. The Hollywood star has long campaigned for charitable causes, and founded the Eastern Congo Initiative in a bid to improve conditions in the country. "I like to be involved. Right now, I'm really happy being involved from the outside in government, advocating for the Congolese, taking this movie that I've made 'Argo' and it's really become a springboard for dialogue about our relationship with Iran, which is, as Hillary Clinton said, the most pressing foreign policy issue today. So, I've got a lot on my plate," he said before the House Armed Services Committee on Wednesday (December 19, 2012).

Affleck's Argo is up for Best Motion Picture (Drama) at the Golden Globes this year. It is considered a frontrunner for Best Picture at the Oscars.

This Divided State Review


Excellent
When I think of mass bigotry arising out of a fundamentalist religious credo, my images go to the Taliban, the Iranian clerics, the Palestinian Hamas. Farther back in history, grand ideas about God and the power of the church led to the Inquisition and the Crusades. But, in modern times, in a modern western society? Here in the U.S. of A? Community intolerance based on religious fanaticism is unknown... isn't it?

If anyone imagines that the answer to that question is yes, this documentary stands to wipe out that rosy picture. Sadly and profoundly, the tendency in the human race to gather into groups that think themselves superior to others is alive and well in the Mormon community of Utah where, in some places, principles of democracy, inclusion, and concepts like freedom of speech just don't apply.

Going Upriver: The Long War Of John Kerry Review


Excellent
If you go see George Butler's fine new documentary Going Upriver: The Long War of John Kerry (based on the book Tour of Duty) you will understand unequivocally why John Kerry has chosen to run his presidential campaign on his experience and record in the Vietnam War. But it is not for the obvious reasons: While many see him running solely on his in-battle war record, that's only the half of it.

Vietnam was a war that defined a nation and in the process it defined an entire generation of soldiers who fought there. John Kerry came home in the early 1970s and -- like a majority of the soldiers -- felt disillusioned by not only the way the war was going but by the actions and attitudes of the government that sent them there in the first place.

Steven Spielberg Expresses Disappointment For Hollywood Not Supporting John Kerry


Steven Spielberg John Kerry Bill Clinton George W Bush Schindler's List

Genius, legendary filmmaker, Steven Spielberg, has spoken out about how he was incredibly annoyed that Hollywood's A-Listers failed to rally behind the Democrat Presidential candidate, John Kerry, during the election campaign in November 2004. The acclaimed director behind 'Schindler's List', 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'Jaws' (amongst others), was a strong supporter for Kerry's unsuccessful Presidency campaign against George W Bush.

Spielberg was especially disappointed to find himself as one of the few influential members of the film industry in support of Kerry. In the 1990s, Hollywood superstars fell over themselves in order to lend their support to the campaign of the highly charismatic Bill Clinton. It is this charisma that Spielberg believes caused the support to come to Clinton, and while Kerry may lack it, Spielberg maintains that he would have made a great leader.
