      Good for him! You do realize that his son is not adopted, right?

      I’d vote for Tom Daley over Clay Aiken any day!

      Best wishes Clay! Admirable that he would consider the position.

      Would love to hear more about Ruben Studdard’s connection to the store shovels. Sounds juicy.

      “…has a good shot at winning.”

      WHAT?!?! Completely delusional. This district went for Romney by 15.5%. NO Democrat, including Aiken (or should I say ESPECIALLY Aiken) will win this district. If Renee Ellmers kills a group of children on Halloween 2014, then Aiken might have “a good shot at winning” (maybe).

      @JDJase, you’re wrong. Ellmers is on the way out even by her own party members. The only opposition Clay will have is Crisco, a 70 year old businessman who will croak before the election if we’re lucky.

      @NomNomNom: The only way Ellmers will lose her seat is in a Republican primary. This is a conservative district. The numbers aren’t there for a Democrat to win. The only way you could possibly believe otherwise is if you’re one of the delusional “zomg all the Republicans are gonna lose!!!” sheep.

      @JDJase:

      Ellmers has already lost her seat because of her own bigotry.

      @NomNomNom: wow you are delusional. Yeah I guess you’re right, a very Republican district would NEVER vote for a Republican who isn’t down with the gays! (that’s sarcasm btw, you seem like you need that pointed out to you). If you can’t provide actual analysis other than “everyone I know is gonna vote against her!!!” then don’t even attempt to argue.

      The DCCC declined to comment on Aiken specifically.

      “Congresswoman Ellmers is responsible for the most unpopular and reckless Congress in history that’s put the middle class at greater risk, but it’s up to potential candidates to talk about whether they’re interested in running for Congress, not us,” DCCC spokesman David Bergstein said.

      He can run but I doubt he will get far once all his skeletons come out of the closet. He is a bit of a nutjob. But then again, so are most congressmen. We will just all laugh when a scandal blows up once he is in office.

      Skeletons? What skeletons? He’s been out for over 5 years. Had gay sex with a gay man. Um…. what else?

      Will he break into song on the floor of the House? I’d pay to see that. Even as a conservative Democrat he’d be better than a conservative Republican.

      Run, Clay Aiken, run!

      I haven’t heard him discuss politics or a personal political point of view. I’d like to know if anyone knows his politics and qualifications. Colorado has three out gay men at the state level and they are excellent because they’re durable, brilliant and diplomatic. If Aiken has those qualities, more power to him!

      @SteveDenver:

      Google Clay Aiken + Congress. There’s about a million articles full of information. Much more than you’ll find here.
