When asked by Piers Morgan on his new CNN show 'Piers Morgan Tonight' if he'd like to run the country, George said: "Why would I? My job is as good as it gets - why change it? The truth of the matter is, let's use the president we have now. He's kind, considerate and passionate and the guy I would want to have in the job and he's getting a hard time - why would anybody want to do that? But I do applaud anyone that wants to go into public service."
George - who was recently on a trip to Sudan in North Eastern Africa, where he was working with the United Nations and Google on a project to help prevent a new civil war - says he's happy with the position he's in at the moment because he can air his views without thinking of the consequences.
He said: "I don't have anyone else that I have to answer to. I can say, here is what I think, here is what I believe in and I'm going to stand for it. And you can not like me for it or you can help me with it but I don't represent a lot of other people or have to answer to anyone."
During his trip to Sudan, George contracted malaria but has "completely" recovered from his battle with the illness.
