Secretary of State Hillary Clinton has a lot going on these days, but she may have found a novel way to solve one of her lingering issues. Hint: It involves Simon Cowell. The problem? Clinton still owes a lot of money from her marathon primary campaign against Barack Obama for the Democratic presidential nomination. So Clinton ally and political commentator James Carville sent out a fundraising letter offering people who contribute to Clinton’s cause a chance to win, among other prizes, two tickets to the American Idol finale. How’s that for a political play? It got us thinking: What else could Clinton offer you to get you to pay down her debt? A trip to the Oscar ceremony? A walk-on role in the next Batman movie? Or…how about a lunch date with Jon Hamm?!
