Alec Baldwin for President? It could be a possibility.

The "30 Rock" actor tells former New York Governor Eliot Spitzer on his CNN show, that a career in politics is "something I'm very, very interested in."

"We've had men who are ? Ivy League-groomed running this country since 1988," Baldwin says in a preview clip, which can be seen below, for the show that airs on Wednesday. "We've had 22 years of Yale and Harvard running this country right now. And the problems aren't getting solved."

Spitzer responds to Baldwin, "You almost sound like Sarah Palin."

"What's missing is that we need people obviously who are educated, or a leader who brings the educated people in on their back, but people who have not lost sight of what the middle class in this country needs," Baldwin later said.

Baldwin, who has often talked about retiring after his work on "30 Rock" is finished, talked about finally finding joy in the entertainment business. "I'm 52 years old, and I'm just beginning to understand in the last few years really what I'm doing and I'm growing to love where I am in my business," the actor said. "To quit now when it really feels good and doing it feels good would be an enormously difficult thing to do."
