So how does Alec Baldwin's 30 Rock character Jack Donaghy make amends for his admittedly misguided job last season with the Bush administration?

"I would like Michelle Obama on 30 Rock," Baldwin told Hollyscoop.com at the premiere of Lymelife on Wednesday at the 14th Annual Gen Art Film Festival in New York.

Baldwin, who turns 51 on Friday, says he's more interested in getting the First Lady on the show than her husband because, "the President is on TV every day, all day. So we want to get something different."

Such a VIP appearance would not be uncharacteristic for the Emmy-winning NBC sitcom, which has attracted mega celeb guests like Oprah Winfrey, Jennifer Aniston and Jerry Seinfeld, and political figures including Al Gore, James Carville and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg.

When asked what role Michelle Obama would play, Baldwin teased: "I think my character falls in love with Michelle Obama, of course." He jokingly added, "You know, if it doesn't work out with Barack ..."

Last season, Baldwin's Donaghy briefly worked in a dead-end position as director of Homeland Security Crisis And Weather Management, under a character played by Matthew Broderick. Donaghy eventually got himself fired by declaring that he’d funded a "gay bomb" that makes enemy soldiers want to have sex with each other.
