Kilmer for governor?

For some reason, someone asked outgoing New Mexico governor Bill Richardson if he’d like actor Val Kilmer (Deja Vu) to succeed him…The democrat politician had this to say:

I like the idea. Val Kilmer is a New Mexican, he was Batman. You know there have been successful actors going into politics. I haven’t talked to him about it, I don’t know how serious he is, but you know if he jumps in a race he’s got name ID, so it can’t be discounted.

It’s good to know being Batman is a political advantage. Christian Bale for King of England!
