  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Cleese for mayor? by Louise on 17 December 2003 3:21pm
From the Daily Telegraph

After Arnold Schwarzenegger's election victory, John Cleese looks like being the next screen star to run for political office in the United States. Fellow Monty Python actor Michael Palin tells Spy that Cleese is thinking of running for mayor of Santa Barbara, California, where he now lives.

"John's very involved with the local community there," said Palin at this week's Hatchards' Christmas party. "He says that he might be running for mayor, and I think he'd do a great job."

When he lived in Britain, Cleese was a prominent supporter of the Liberal Democrats, and appeared in several of their party political broadcasts. Of his chum's acting career, Palin adds: "John has decided he doesn't really want to do comedy any more. He has a very active and inquiring mind, so he's doing these guest appearances in Harry Potter to fund the rest of his life."
