I like Shirley MacLaine, but her interest in the field is from
the 'New Age' side of this field, which there are many among us
who really wish would go away. I would note that on her web site
she has links and information related to Astrology, but UFOs
remains buried. I was able to find her list of recommended UFO
readings, which include:

Your 21st Century Mind
By Rebecca Hardcastle

Political Implications Of The Extraterrestrial Presence
According to Dr. Michael Salla and many other experts in the
field of ET research, for almost 70 years the US government has
engaged in an extensive "official effort" of disinformation,
intimidation and tampering with evidence in order to maintain a
non-disclosure policy about extraterrestrial presence.

UFO's and the National Security State
Chronology of a Cover-Up: 1941-1973
by Richard M. Dolan

Unconventional Flying Objects
A Scientific Analysis
by Paul R. Hill


The only two that I have owned are the last two, and I would be
surprised if Shirley actually got through the Paul Hill
publication, which is fairly technical in nature.  I think the
first three say a lot about her general mindset.

As far as Kucinich's UFO sighting is concerned, it's an
interesting side note, but it didn't really change the debate or
add new information for ufology. The same is true for the two
former Presidents, whose sightings have become public and
described at length in the media.  I also believe that the
Kucinich outing has little impact on the political outcome,
except to add a bit of the giggle factor to his campaign.

In my mind Shirley MacLaine is right up there with Jackie
Gleason, who also had a deep-seated belief in alien visitation,
among those who are high in the Entertainment Industry.
