Anti-war actress Sarandon bored by Bush's Iraq pitch

Actress Susan Sarandon says she was bored by President George W. Bush's State of the Union address asking Americans to give his troop buildup in Iraq a chance.

"He didn't talk to me about anything new," she said Wednesday, her own anti-war stance unaltered.

Sarandon appeared with a group of lawmakers in support of a measure to instead withdraw U.S. forces from Iraq within six months. The place to start building support is with the 2008 presidential candidates, she said.

"We're hoping to ask all the candidates in the future, everyone that's hoping to run, to really make this part of their campaigns," Sarandon said.

It's not the first time the actress has tried to bring her star power to bear on next year's presidential race. Last year, she told a British television interviewer she was not enthusiastic about a presidential bid by Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, a Democrat, saying Clinton had "crumbled under the pressure of the moment" in voting for the war. Clinton announced her candidacy last weekend, reports AP.

Sarandon said she will appear with fellow Hollywood war critics Sean Penn and Tim Robbins at an Iraq war protest this weekend in Washington. Last year, she attended a Mother's Day war protest here and also marched in New York City with "peace mom" Cindy Sheehan.
