"I like Ron Paul because he

"I like Ron Paul because he believes in less government and letting the people (all of us) make the decisions and mold our country."

The above statement is all that is needed from her. How did she back track exactly? What more do you want? Any aggressive stance or defensive posture from a celebrity in the spot light would do more harm as it would reinforce the ridiculous notion from MSM that RP supporters or kookoo. That's what they want. It was clearly worth it as look at all publicity it got. Google Clarkson and Ron Paul and the good things out weigh the bad 8 to 1 easily. So it does in fact help Ron Paul. Enough so where the Ron Paul campaign tweeted a thank you for her words. I don't like her music either but my sisters do so I bought them her album as an extended xmas gift. I am sure many people have similar situations and alternate reasons as well. And don't worry, the same people that helped push kelly up, are the same people probably contributing to the campaign every pay check. I know I do.
