Got a very unusual E-mail from James Carville today on behalf of Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's 2008 presidential campaign. To erase her debt, he offered a chance at some amazing choices in return for cold cash. How about bumming around New York with Bill Clinton? Or even a weekend of political chatter with the Rajun Cajun and his buddy Paul Begala? And finally, what about a seat at the American Idol finale? (What would Simon say, or for that matter the whole Fox operation?)

"I knew it was going to take an extraordinary effort to help pay off Hillary Clinton's campaign debt. But now, I think we can do it and have some fun at the same time! I won't spend a lot of time trying to convince you to help Hillary. I know what she means to you, and I'm sure you know how important it is for her to have her campaign pay off all its obligations," he pens to those of us who signed up to follow her campaign.
