Get ready for “Mr. Clooney Goes to Washington” as George and new wife Amal get closer to Michelle and Barack Obama.

The President is “desperate” to recruit George as a candidate, and the Oscar winner is all for it, insiders dished to The ENQUIRER.

“George and Barack are a lot closer than people think. Rarely a week goes by they don’t talk,” said a source.

“Barack totally respects George and thinks he has a brilliant political mind, so he and Michelle have invited George and Amal for dinner at the White House.

“Michelle thinks Amal is adorable, and Barack was impressed, too,” added the source.

“Now, with a savvy wife at his side, George is a serious contender as a candidate!”
