Actor Val Kilmer tells the New York Post that he's thinking about running for governor.
"I know I'm not yet qualified for the job. It's not like I need fame. If that's what it's all about, I wouldn't live in New Mexico. But I don't want to be a train wreck. I have to see if people will put up the money for my run. I have to think about putting my acting on hold. Being famous as a movie actor is one thing, but they take no prisoners in politics. I have to think what this might do to my kids.
"Or to anybody. I plan to sit down with Arnold Schwarzenegger."
Kilmer, a registered Democrat, would have to take on Lt. Gov. Diane Denish, the likely Democratic nominee and possibly already the incumbent if Richardson leaves the state in the coming months to take a job in the Obama administration. It's no secret that Richardson and Denish haven't always seen eye-to-eye, and the governor's comments about a potential Kilmer run fueled rumors that Richardson is looking for someone to take on Denish.http://haussamen.blogspot.com/2008/11/kilmer-confirms-that-he-may-run-for.html
