Charles Barkley For Governor

Charles Barkley is done with his basketball career, and sports casting just isn't enough for this superstar. So he's decided to turn to politics. He joined several celebrities at this week's Democratic National Convention, where he talked about following in the footsteps of Arnold Schwarzenegger and becoming a governor.

He tells the New York Daily News, "I'm planning to run for governor of Alabama. I have to live there for seven years. I bought my house there last year. I have homes in Arizona and Pennsylvania, but Alabama needs more help."

What do you think about Barkley's plan to turn political? Does he have what it takes?
