1. America Is Close To Getting The 'American Idol' Congressperson It Totally Deserves

Former American Idol contestant Clay Aiken currently leads his opponent by less than than 400 votes in the Democratic primary for North Carolina's 2nd congressional district. Should he pull of a narrow victory, the openly gay singer will face Republican State Rep. Thom Tillis in the final contest on November 4. It is currently unknown which songs both men will sing that night, but we recommend Aiken pull "Bridge Over Troubled Water" out of his bag again. That one should really resonate with voters in tough economic times.
