Steve Wozniak: Dancing with the Startups

Tim & I were wondering about Steve Wozniak's new path to stardom, and surmising that this could signal a much looser definition of 'star'.  Please suggest your nominations for next season's lineup from any of the following new 'star' categories (please add more):
1) Retired Bush administration spokesperson Ari Fleischer.
2) Unsuccessful Supreme Court nominee Harriet Myers.
3) Popular southern food cookbook author Paula Dean.
4) Former congressman Larry Craig.
5) The two guys who sell the beanie babies on late night TV.
6) Liberal blogger Markos Moulitsas Zuniga.
7) Daredevil stunt pilot Capt Sully Sullenberger.
8) Newly-retired president Pervez Musharref.
9) Popular 3rd season American Idol semi-finalist [name]. 
10) Comic strip star Cathy of "Cathy".
