The candidates are making appearances on shows like the Ellen DeGeneres Show and Regis and Kelly, hoping to woo voters who don't really follow politics.
For better or worse, it's moments like these that get many people to tune in to the campaign. "I do think people feel badly that they can't tell you more about the economy, foreign policy, Iraq, who their representatives are," says Harvey Levin, executive producer of TMZ.com, a celeb-obsession Web site that is covering the candidates the same way it does movie stars. "They probably wish they could … but it's just so damn boring for them."
So there we have it, our next presidential election will be decided by people who don't know or care what the candidates stand for.
