Sherri Sheppard finally got her wish to spend the night with Prince _ but she had to share him with a few other celebrities, including Spike Lee, Naomi Campbell, Jamie Foxx and her "View" co-host Whoopi Goldberg.

"The group should consider the fact that one of the greatest predictors of a one-versus-two-term president is having an in-party challenge," Mr. West said. "Presidents with no nomination challenge such as Reagan, Clinton, and Bush won re-election while those with a significant in-party challenge such as Carter and George Herbert Walker Bush lost their bids for re-election."
