Remember when people used to watch American Idol
? Season 2 seems light years ago, but it created two stars. Well, then. Now, one of them – Clay Aiken – is in a different sort of popularity contest. He’s running for the US Congress from his home state of North Carolina.
And last week, the other one – Ruben Studdard, who beat Clay that year – came out in support of his Idol pal. Take a listen to the radio ad, embedded here.
Whoever said that politics makes strange bedfellows hit the nail on the head.
