Alec Baldwin, politician? The 30 Rock actor says he's thinking about a future run for New York City mayor. Baldwin is known for his liberal political views, as well as his animal rights activism with PETA. Baldwin says he wants to go back to school first for a masters degree in politics. Baldwin said he wants to learn the ropes of the city's highest office, including how to deal with city unions, teachers, infrastructure, and other major players. He seems to be aiming high, but says he’s looking beyond 2013, when Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s term is up. "I am someone who is fully prepared for the fact that I could go into this and do it and completely have my ass kicked," said Baldwin.
