Ronald Reagan, Jesse Ventura, Fred Thompson, Arnold Schwarz., Sonny Bono, that guy from the Love Boat, that guy from Dukes of Hazzard...I can't think of a single Democrat who ran a successful campaign. Heck, aside from Fraken, I think think of one who ran. Any thoughts? CraigC 00:30, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

That is really interesting considering how liberal Hollywood is considered to be. FernoKlumpLook at this petition! 00:34, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Interesting. Don't forget Clint Eastwood. DanH 00:36, 15 June 2008 (EDT)

Actually, Jesse Ventura was an independent, not a Republican. --Jareddr 10:15, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
And "that guy from Dukes of Hazzard", aka Ben Jones, ran and won a Congressional seat in 1988 and a Democrat. So you can now say that not only do you know of an actor who ran as a Democrat, but won too! --Jareddr 10:19, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
Technically an "actor" for his role for in a few TV episodes, Jerry Springer was Democratic mayor of Cincy before becoming an actor, the reverse of your question. --Jareddr 10:22, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
Nice points everyone! I forgot about Springer and was wrong about Jones. CraigC 10:36, 15 June 2008 (EDT)
Ronald Reagan was a Democrat before becoming a Republican. Remember his line of him not leaving the Democrat party but of the Democrat party leaving him?--Roopilots6 19:58, 11 September 2008 (EDT)
Add George Murphy, move star and GOP US Senator from California when reagan was Governor. Going back to 1920s: Democrat Al Smith was an amateur actor. Superstar Will Rogers said "I'm not a member of an organized political party. I'm a Democrat." RJJensen 20:29, 11 September 2008 (EDT)

Those actors are the ones who care about their country and not about themselves. -Jowns
