42. Do the Dems have *any* politicians that are former actors?
I know the Republicans have Schwarzeneggar, Reagan, Eastwood, and Thompson. Both Schwarzeneggar and Thompson are (or at least were) discussed as possible GOP contenders for the White House. Do the Democrats have any similar affinity for actor politicians...?

I'd expect the Dems to at least MATCH the Republicans in this respect, considering the way the right-wing loves to toss around the word "Hollywood" as a pejorative.
