Washington: George Clooney is doing the rounds of Washington, D.C. to raise awareness about a possible political division in Sudan that may cause more civilian war in the already troubled nation.

In a referendum that could divide north and south Sudan, he is reported to be meeting with Sen. Richard Lugar (R-Ind.) as well as President Obama; he’ll also make a presentation this evening at the Council on Foreign Relations.

The Oscar-winner appeared on this morning’s ‘Today’ show to bring more attention to the issue, reports the Washington Post.

Clooney uses his celebrity status to maximum advantage in order to bring to people’s attention a subject.
