Clay Aiken for Congress? If these 5 celebs can do it, why not the 'American Idol' winner?

"American Idol" runner-up Clay Aiken is apparently thinking about throwing his hat into the ring for the U.S. Congress. The Washington Blade reports two Democratic sources familiar with Aiken say that he is actively considering a run for the 2nd congressional district U.S. House seat in his home state of North Carolina.

The sources say that Aiken has consulted political advisors in Washington, D.C., trying to gauge support, and also spoken with Raleigh-based political strategic Betsy Conti. The Democratic primary for that district is set for May 6, so we'll know soon enough if it is indeed true.

It's hard to reconcile the above video with a member of the U.S. House of Representatives, but if the people below could go from entertainment to politics, then why not Aiken?
