A host of celebrities, such as Scarlett Johansson, Will.i.am, Common, Kate Walsh, Nicole Scherzinger and Nick Cannon, have lent their singing voices to "Yes, We Can," a cool YouTube video supporting Sen. Barack Obama (Ill.).

It was inspired by Barack Obama's "Yes We Can" speech. See below ...

Meanwhile, Barack's chief rival for the Democratic presidential nomination, Sen. Hillary Clinton (N.Y.), teared up - AGAIN - at an event, this time at the Yale Child Study Center, where she worked while in law school...

What do you think: Is Hillary Clinton crying too much?

With tomorrow's Super Tuesday primaries and caucuses in 22 U.S. states, the race between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton is getting tighter by the day - and celebrities are flocking to both of the popular contenders.

You can count on Ann Coulter to hate Jewish people, look like a man, throw the word "treason" around way too often, and to generally suck.

But a recent statement that she might back Hillary Clinton in November's general election? That took The Hollywood Gossip by surprise. Check it out ...

Hillary is locked in a tight race with Barack Obama for the Democratic nomination. Ann says she prefers her to presumptive Republican foe John McCain.

We can't imagine that's true, but this race is nothing if not unpredictable.

Last night's Democratic presidential debate in L.A. between Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, was notable for several reasons:

  • Nobody started crying during it
  • There was actually a discussion of issues
  • A large number of stars were in the audience

Forget the Oscars or Grammy Awards - they should have had a red carpet for this thing! Just a few of the many celebrities on hand:

Steven Spielberg, Leonardo DiCaprio, Pierce Brosnan, Diane Keaton, Stevie Wonder, former Grey's Anatomy star Isaiah Washington, Bradley Whitford of The West Wing, and America Ferrera (with fiance/non-fiance Ryan Piers Williams).

Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton talk health care and foreign policy.

Barack Obama certainly has his share of celebrity support (Oprah Winfrey, Scarlett Johansson), but like the nation's voters so far, the crowd on hand last night seemed relatively split between the two Democrats.

America Ferrera has even teamed with Chelsea Clinton and has actually been knocking on doors for their fave candidate. We mean Hillary Clinton.

Their battle for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination has taken over the news, but we're going back to their college days for this photo finish.

Born in 1947, Hillary Clinton is a product of the baby boom generation through and through... right down to her obligatory hippie phase in the late 1960s.

While he missed out on that part of American history, Barack Obama (born 1961) was still one cool customer when he enrolled at Columbia University.

My, how these youngans have grown up ...

Which do you like better: the Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama of yore?

In Saturday's South Carolina primary, Obama defeated Clinton in a rout that may only be surpassed by Tom Brady and the Patriots in next Sunday's Super Bowl. Obama won 55 percent of the vote to Hillary's 27 percent.

The next big date on the primary calendar for these co-frontrunners is February 5, a.k.a. Super Tuesday, when more than 20 states vote.

Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler. Donald Trump and Rosie O'Donnell. Britney Spears and Kevin Federline. These famous squabbling celebs have nothing on a new pair of high-profile Americans competing for the nation's highest office!

During last night's Democratic debate in South Carolina, rivals Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton sparred frequently and bitterly, making viewers entertained but uncomfortable, and leaving John Edwards trying to get a word in edgewise.

She may not have turned on the water works on the Tyra Banks show this week, but Hillary Clinton did stump for the sympathy of woman everywhere by discussing her contrived marriage in public.

The presidential hopeful was asked about forgiving husband Bill Clinton for his affair with Monica Lewinsky and she replied as though it was an isolated incident in an otherwise perfect union.

"I really had to dig down deep and think hard about what was right for me, what was right for my family," Clinton said in her taped appearance, set to air Friday. "I never doubted Bill's love for me ever, and I never doubted my faith and my commitment to our daughter and our extended family."

Or her political aspirations, of course.

Clinton added that she struggled with feelings of anger and embarrassment.

"The momentary feelings â€" you know, you are mad, you are really upset, you are disappointed â€" all of that goes through your mind …" Clinton said. "I have found you really shouldn't make decisions in the heat of those moments."

Instead, you should plan for them in detail, such as the fake sudden outburst of emotion Hillary displayed before the critical New Hampshire primary last week.

Maybe breaking down in tears wasn't necessarily a bad thing.

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton shook off doubts that her campaign was on the verge of collapse by pulling out a somewhat surprising, narrow win over Barack Obama in yesterday's New Hampshire primary.

Not to worry, though. Hillary Clinton is still insane. See below.

  "OMG!!!! We won!!!!! Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!"

With her poll numbers slipping and Barack Obama surging, Hillary Clinton became extremely emotional during a campaign stop in New Hampshire.

We're not calling it a Britney Spears-style meltdown or anything, but the usually unflappable Hillary definitely breaks down a little in this clip...

Hillary Clinton finished a disappointing third in the Iowa caucus to Barack Obama and John Edwards. The New Hampshire primary is tomorrow. Is her candidacy doomed? On life support? Or poised for a comeback? What do you think?

We know who's leading in the polls (or at least we did, two hours ago when we last checked), but which presidential candidates dominate the celebrity gossip world? Who would be the next president if online searches were votes?

In a race that mirrors recent Iowa and New Hampshire polling data, Barack Obama has narrowly edged out fellow Democratic senator Hillary Rodham Clinton as the top-searched presidential hopeful of 2007 across the Internets.

Obama's slight victory over Hillary Clinton may be thanks to a relative unknown status at the beginning of the year, as well as his huge support from many females - ranging from hot and nude (Amber Lee Ettinger) to all-powerful (Oprah).

If celebrity and online buzz were votes, Barack Obama would be president!

Ron Paul (R) came from nowhere to claim the #3 spot. While his numbers are about half of Clinton and Obama for the year, he took a web lead in November.

John Edwards (D) didn't lag too far behind at #4, while Fred Thompson's late entry, TV credentials and spouse helped his online attention surge above his fellow GOPers Mitt Romney (R), Rudy Giuliani (R) and John McCain at #5.

Expect the candidates' celebrity gossip buzz to change in 2008 - as searches already have for Mike Huckabee (R), thanks in part to a new sidekick.

The Top Searched Presidential Candidates in 2007:

  1. Barack Obama (D)
  2. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D)
  3. Ron Paul (R)
  4. John Edwards (D)
  5. Fred Thompson (R)
  6. Mitt Romney (R)
  7. John McCain (R)
  8. Rudy Giuliani (R)
