No one told Clay Aiken running for Congress would be easy. And if they did, he should probably fire them from his campaign.
The former American Idol star participated in his first political debate on Monday night, and it was a slugfest!
[ Video: Clay Aiken Announces His North Carolina Congressional Bid ]
Clay's opponent, Republican Renee Elmers, took jab after jab at Clay, mostly related to his career as an entertainer.
She even blamed him for the economy, which doesn't make a whole lot of sense given that she's the incumbent and he hasn't actually served in Congress at all yet.

No, Ashley Judd is not set to star in another political thriller; she's looking towards the real deal!

Even though the Missing star has yet to officially confirm the announcement, a source from MSNBC anticipates that Ashley will go up against Republican minority Mitch McConnell for the powerful position.

America has spoken and Mitt Romney has been DE-NIED!
Barack Obama will remain in the Oval Office as President of the United States of America and we couldn't be happier.
Not only is the economy slowly creeping toward recovery, but his administration has made leaps and bounds for the LGBT community over the last four years, so we can't see what kind of equality is right around the corner.
With Ohio being awarded to the POTUS at around 11:15, Barack Obama will serve another term!
Congrats, Mr. President!

New Jersey governor Chris Christie has made his less-than-favorable opinion of Barack Obama pretty clear over the course of his presidency, but in light of Hurricane Sandy, the Republican has set aside his differences with the Democrat.
While visiting the Brigantine Beach Community Center and speaking to refugees of the storm, they both praised each other's response to the disaster.
When Obama told the crowd, “I want to let you know that your governor is working overtime," Christie added:

Katy Perry lent her voice to Barack Obama's presidential campaign on Sunday night when she performed at his latest El Lay fundraiser.
Along with Jon Bon Jovi, Earth, Wind & Fire, Stevie Wonder and Jennifer Hudson, Katy sang her heart out at the Nokia Theatre with hopes of re-electing the Democratic nominee.
She belted out one of her biggest hits, Firework (above) and then covered Al Green's Let's Stay Together to show the POTUS how it's done!
They totally should have done a duet! Check out her rendition … AFTER THE JUMP!!!

Despite all of the domestic talking points that Barack Obama and Mitt Romney discussed during Wednesday's debate, Big Bird was the hottest topic of the night.
While spouting off federal programs he would cut in order to lower the country's deficit, the Republican presidential candidate turned to PBS news anchor Jim Leherer and said:
