Matthew McConaughey is still considering running for office. In a new podcast, the actor and Texas native said he's "measuring" the idea. He went on to explain, “Look, it's going to be in some capacity. I just - I’m more of a folksy and philosopher poet statesman than I am a, per se, definitive politician.
So I go, well, that's a reason not to, but then I go, no, that's exactly why you should, because politics needs redefinition, but I'm measuring, you know, what is my category? What's my embassy?" He also said his struggle is how to remain an artist and still be a politician.
The idea of Matthew McConaughey as a politician is an intriguing one, but could he get the votes? In today's political environment, he really needs to bring some big ideas to help the state.
