U2 frontman Bono is tempted to become a full-time politician, but would miss the salary and freedom of speech he enjoys as a rocker.

The WITH OR WITHOUT YOU star is devoted to campaigning for AIDS and African famine victims but is reluctant to give up his celebrity lifestyle to support the causes full-time.

He explains, "I'm oscillating. I'm between a rocker and politician. I like to be able to say what I want. Politicians can't do that. I think I like power without responsibility. And I'd have to have a smaller house."

Bono made the revelations in a candid interview with Britain's Prime Minister Tony Blair's former press chief ALASTAIR CAMPBELL for TV show ALASTAIR CAMPBELL INTERVIEWS BONO on Britain's CHANNEL FIVE station tonight (27OCT04).
