Lance Armstrong Considers Political Office?

Posted on 9:50 AM by Sameer Shah

Lance Armstrong has hinted that he might consider running for political office in the future, according to People. On Thursday night, Lance told reporters at the Foundation's Livestrong Summit in Columbus, Ohio which as attended by Senator John McCain:

"There might come a time when you feel like you've reached a wall and you need to step into
and try to make change through that channel or those ends."

Armstrong pointed out during an interview with CNN's Campbell Brown that both presidential candidates support cancer research. He said:

"Both candidates I believe care about this issue. Senator McCain is a cancer survivor himself. Senator Obama, I know, is committed after having lost his mother to this disease."

At the summit, McCain told attendees:

"Lance Armstrong is making all the difference in the world, and I'm honored to be in his company."

When asked which candidate would make a better exercise partner, he said:

"I don't have an answer for you on who I would workout with. Probably best just to do a little triathlon. You know, we could hike one day with Senator McCain and play basketball one day with Senator Obama and then the other day they have to go ride with me, and then we’ll figure it out."

How diplomatic of him...I'd definitely prefer working out with Obama and I'm not ashamed to say it.
