Behold the power of Ron Paul's followers: Since Kelly Clarkson tweeted her support for Paul to be the nominee, her album sales have soared, report CNN Money and the Hollywood Reporter. Her latest, Stronger, shot up from No. 38 to No. 7 on Amazon between Thursday and yesterday, with sales up 442%. As of this morning, the album had risen to No. 2. What's more, an older album, All I Ever Wanted, saw sales spike nearly 400% as it rose from 1,749 to 363.

One new fan posted this in a review: "I must admit I have not really followed you but your recent stance on Ron Paul made me check you out. If you are smart enough to support Ron Paul then you are probably talented too." (More Kelly Clarkson stories.)
