Clay Aiken: Politics Is Harder Than 'American Idol'
Description:Democrat Clay Aiken says his celebrity from American Idol is a double-edged sword as he runs for Congress in North Carolina. Aiken said Tuesday in an interview with NBC’s Today show, explaining how his fame from the TV show is both a blessing and a curse, “We have to get people to see me in a different light." Crisco, a former North Carolina Commerce secretary who was trailing Aiken after primary voting, died the day before final election results in North Carolina’s 2nd District were reported.(0:47)
