Paris Hilton for President?

Hosted by

John McCain's campaign has ridiculed Barack Obama by comparing his celebrity status to that of Paris Hilton. Now Hilton has released a video announcing her candidacy for the White House against that "wrinkly old white-haired guy." In her video, Hilton proposes an energy plan combining McCain's off-shore drilling with Obama's hybrid-vehicle industry. McCain's campaign says it sounds as if she's supporting him. What's going on?
