Rapper/actress Queen Latifah has joked she'd like a job in politics, after being inspired by Geena Davis' role as America's first female president in TV drama COMMANDER IN CHIEF.

The star, who opened last night's (16JAN06) Golden Globe ceremony, is determined to see Davis' award-winning role pave the way for a future female head of state.

But after offering an impromptu manifesto, Latifah was forced to accept there are other celebrities who may be better suited to a life in government.

She said, "I'll run (for president). Damn it, I'll take the job.

"I'd make sleeping in legal. Everybody can come into work around 11.... No, maybe OPRAH should be president."
