(CNN) –- Which presidential nominee would play the better James Bond? British actor Daniel Craig seems to think Sen. Barack Obama has what it takes.

In an interview with Parade Magazine, Craig, the latest heart-throb to fill the shoes of James Bond on the silver screen, said “Obama would be better because—if he’s true to his word—he’d be willing to quite literally look the enemy in the eye and go toe-to-toe with them.”

Craig said McCain would be a better M, Bond’s boss, “because of his long service and experience.”

“There is, come to think of it, a kind of Judi Dench quality to McCain,” He added in reference to the famed British actress who has long played Bond’s superior.

But on the subject of the better Bond girl, mum’s the word.

The actor would not answer whether he thought Michelle Obama or Cindy McCain would be best fit for the part.

“That’s much too dangerous a question” Craig said.
