All aboard! Next stop… American Idol?

The three major presidential candidates will be making an appearance on American Idol tonight. The spots will air as part of the show’s “Idol Gives Back” campaign to raise money and awareness for a number of charities.

This is just another testament to how much presidential campaigns have evolved in recent years, becoming further embedded into the media-driven, pop-culture American experience.

Goodbye whistle stop campaigns. Hello corporate sponsored celebrathons.

For better or worse.
