Source: The New PaperBen Affleck, future politician? The 40-year-old actor-director, whose latest flick Argo is tipped for a couple of Oscars next year, was vague when discussing his political ambitions on US news talk show Face The Nation. When TV news anchor Bob Schieffer pressed Affleck about whether he would run for a Senate seat in his home state of Massachusetts should incumbent John Kerry be asked to become the US Secretary of State, he was vague. He told Schieffer in a pre-recorded interview on Wednesday: "I'm not going to get into speculation about my political future. I do have a great fondness and admiration for the political process in this country."
