Hillary Clinton Weighs In On American Idol Finalist Sanjaya Malakar

April 15, 2007 08:01 AM by Joe Blackmon

American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar has become so popular that even
Presidential hopefuls are being asked about him.  According to a report
in the Boston Globe, Democratic presidential hopeful Hillary Rodham
Clinton was asked during a WOKQ-FM radio call-in what could be done
about American Idol finalist Sanjaya Malakar.

Clinton gave the very politically correct answer of “That’s the best question I’ve been asked in a long time. Well, you know, people can vote for whomever they want. That’s true in my election, and it’s true on ‘American Idol.’”

Of course, Hillary Clinton’s answer doesn’t make it clear whether she is Sanjaya fan or not.  Given that ABC News recently conducted street interviews of New Yorkers and found that people knew more about the American Idol contestants than the Presidential hopefuls, Hillary Clinton probably doesn’t want to lose the votes of either the Sanjaya supporters or the Sanjaya haters.

    The day that anyone with a brain cares ANYTHING about what Hillary Clinton would have to say is that day we heard of: HELL freezin’ over!

    ((Of course, Hillary Clinton’s answer doesn’t make it clear whether she is Sanjaya fan or not))

    ((probably doesn’t want to lose the votes))

    Exactly! Skirt ANY issues (like hubby did) …. this particular issue not important to the presidential race … but is what she always does.

    Hillary Clinton is a good lady and I plan to vote for her as I did her husband. Now She most likely does not watch American Idol so she might not even know who Sanjaya is. or knows what the media says. So I think she did the right answer where she did not give a true opinion because of 1) not having enough information and 2) because this was a question that was not important to her presidential campaign.

    Thats a very nice answer given

    Yeah, i think American Idol is a very fair and square

    U vote for ur own Idol and bammm…u got the winner

    its not about singing competition at all nowadays…its all about star power

    Only Carrie and Kelly who got both talent and star power..

    Carrie is slightly ahead cause she had her niche and its her debut

    Why does Hillary have to give an answer. Even when we vote in an election, we don’t share who we voted for. I am voting for her as well. I think America needs a new face on their politiicans and Hillary is it! I want to see the first lady president. Gad knows that men have had their turn and look where they got us. NOWHERE!
