Politicians, pundits and pop stars quiz: See if you can tell the difference based on these quotes

It's a common saying around the Beltway: Politics is just show-business for ugly people. The parallels between politician and pop star are too numerous to list here, yet by simply looking at the quotes dolled out by rockers and legislators over the years -- and trying to figure out which belongs to whom -- proves there's little polarity between the two personalities. Think you can correctly identify whether Beck or Glenn Beck gave us this quote about stage fright? Or if it was Hillary Clinton or George Clinton that dropped the line about changing hairstyles? Without Googling, see if you can figure out who said what. Submit your answers below for a chance to win tickets to Artopia. We'll pick a pair of winners at random this Friday from the correct answers.
