Idol Gives Back: Forget That Whole Election Thing In November, Let's Just Vote For President Now

Hi. Tomorrow, "American Idol" dives into its conscious-redeeming special, "Idol Gives Back," which makes up for the fact that those judges can be so, so mean every year (hey, we know the feeling, yo). Personally, we love the philanthropic gesture, and love that folks like Oprah are making the idea of giving back, well, popular.

But even if that wasn't the theme of Wednesday's night "Idol," we'd be pretty curious about the show, especially given the list of folks scheduled to make an appearance, be involved or otherwise attach themselves to the show somehow, someway. Like presidential hopefuls Sen. John McCain, Sen. Hillary Clinton and Sen. Barack Obama. We wish they would have a sing-off! OR EVEN BETTER, you know how they say that more people vote on "Idol" than in the presidential elections? Well, now we can find out FOR SURE. Seriously. Just put them up there, and let's settle this once and for all.
