American Idol introduced us to a new kind of White House intern Wednesday night, Molly Swenson. The Idol hopeful wowed judges and viewers with her husky rendition of "(Sittin' On) The Dock of the Bay". Swenson titilatingly informed America of her crush on President Obama, which she assured judges was "not in a Monica Lewinsky-Bill Clinton kind of way!"
It will be interesting to see what the Harvard University graduate chooses as her career path. Perhaps she can go into politics if the whole being a super star thing doesn't work out.
Now the 'Most Interesting Intern in the World' is on to Hollywood with American Idol. Oh, yeah, and she's been punched in the kisser by Randy Jackson. No lie.
Jonathan Goldsmith better watch his back.
