The View: Nick Jonas For President? Jonas is into Politics, but is he Democrat or Republican?
Jonas Brothers Star Reveals Presidential Plans For 2040
Nick Jonas for President might not be such a crazy idea. Welcome to the hub dedicated to the world of "Nick Jonas Politics". Appearing on The View June 10, 2011, Nick Jonas revealed a more politically savvy side to his persona, expressing not only an interest in politics but stating 2040 as his target for beginning his political career. It turns out this isn't the first time he's publicly stated his intention to run for president and 2040 as the year he is planning for.
This discussion began when Jonas, 18, struck the talk show hosts of the View with his poise and communication skills. Whoopi Goldberg, who recently made waves for her unusual attire at the Tony Awards, asked Jonas point blank, "Are you going into politics?", to which the young star replied without hesitation, "I'd like to", and later stated, "2040. That's the year."
When pressed for more information on what platform he would run on, Jonas declined to give any specifics while noting that he still had a lot of time to work out the details.

Famous Celebrities In Politics
If Nick Jonas really does "go into politics", he'd certainly be in good company. Other musicians, actors and actresses who have transitioned from the stage or "the big screen" into public service are not difficult to locate.
Sonny Bono, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jesse Ventura, and, of course, Ronald Reagan demonstrated that celebrity backgrounds can work to one's advantage in politics, a career where name recognition is perhaps even more important.
So don't be surprised if this is not the last time we here of potential political ambitions for this young musician. Although, for the near future, expect Nick to focus on developing and expanding his acting career, as he seeks to branch out from the Jonas Brothers association and develop a more independent identity.

Could Delta Goodrem Be Nick's Choice For "First Lady"?
Also making news among Jonas Brothers fans, Nick Jonas and Delta Goodrem were spotted holdings hands yet again outside of a Studio City Starbucks on June 12, 2011.
When asked about his relationship status on the View just 2 days previous, Jonas was not providing any details, saying only, "I'm in a really good place as far as my personal life goes." It looks as though a big part of that "good place" does indeed have to do with 26 year old singer Delta Goodrem.
