Paul Ryan For President in 2016? Sources Believe He’ll Run For Office!

PAUL Ryan will run for President in 2016, insiders say.
Ryan — who was Mitt Romney‘s vice presidential pick — is apparently going to make a bid for the White House at the next election.
“Paul loves power,” a source said. “He’s peeved that he and Mitt didn’t win this election. But he’s adamant he’ll be able to win it on his own in 2016.
“He’s convinced Mitt is the reason he didn’t win and is determined to go it alone in four years.”
At the time of his selection by Romney, Ryan was a familiar figure to only 35 per cent of people, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll. Today, he is a household name.
Ryan’s supporters say the campaign enhanced Ryan’s stature. Speaking days before the election, Representative Sean Duffy recalled a warm reception from Democrats when Ryan returned to the chamber’s floor this fall.
They say that the campaign reinforced a reputation for truth-telling and open-mindedness, pointing to his speech on Medicare at a convention for the AARP, a lobbying group for older Americans which has backed Obama administration proposals, as a sign of his political courage.

Actress Sarah Jessica Parker was seen strolling through SoHo, New York on Tuesday (may 22) while escorting her eldest child James Wilkie, 9, to school.
It seems Sarah and her hubby Matthew Broderick are supporting President Obama‘s reelection campaign and hosting a fundraising event at their Manhattan home. A lucky fan could win a sneak peek inside their house by entering a lottery.
If one chooses to make a small donation to the campaign, they will be entered to win an opportunity to rub elbows with Sarah, Matthew, the president and other influential democrats on June 14th.

Post Weinergate, a couple of heads have been thinking about giving the post of Mayor a run since it’s wide open now. One of these heads thinking about contesting for New York’s Mayor in 2013 is Alec Baldwin. He even said that he was ”very interested” in running for office on behalf of the Democrats on CNN earlier this year. Now no offense, Alec, but WTF? Maybe we’re being unfair, but we just can’t wrap our heads around this whole deal, despite his longstanding political aspirations.
But Baldwin has an unlikely supporter in Jennifer Garner, so that should give him a bolster. The actress was on Fox & Friends yesterday and was put on the spot when asked about what her thoughts on the 30 Rock star running for office were. After a bit of a chuckle, Jennifer replied, “I think he would give us all a run for his money. He’s awesome, I love Alec.” She continued with, “It hasn’t stopped anyone before, I think he should go for it. He could run and let people vote!”
Not enough to change the subject apparently, because she was then asked whether she was officially endorsing him, amidst peals of laughter. Jennifer gamely answered, ” Yes, I stand up for Alec Baldwin!” Her husband, Ben Affleck, was thrown in as well, so Jennifer went ahead with, “Yes, Ben stands up for Alec Baldwin too.” What a cutie! That’s two votes of confidence for Alec. He’s totally going to run now, mark our words!
