Celebrated Hollywood actor Aaron Eckhart believes that his Sully: Miracle on the Hudson co-star, Tom Hanks should run for the US Presidential Election 2010. Eckhart thinks Tom would be a great US President.
"I just heard Tom give a speech at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. It was one of the best speeches I've ever heard ... the most affecting, emotional, rational speeches done with absolute mastery and clarity. Everybody after that speech was stunned." Said Aaron Eckhart in a statement.
"I would vote for Tom in a second. If our politicians could speak as well as Tom could...he should be a shoe-in. I think people would actually want Tom to run for president of the United States." Eckhart added.
The Dark Knight continued, "They have confidence that he could do the job - and they have confidence that he could get elected."
However, Eckhart said that he is aware of the fact that getting into politics would also effect Tom Hanks and his family in a big way.
"Tom's no joke either. He's tough in his own way. He's no wilting lily ... he could take the heat. But why would he want to do that? It's such a beatdown. Your family's going to take a beatdown too. I think that's why a lot of qualified people don't get in the race." said Aaron Eckhart.
