American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi says she’ll totally support her dad Joe DioGuardi's Republican bid for the senate, even though where politics is concerned, they’ve had their differences. "We don't always agree on every issue," she told the Post, equivocating when questioned about her party allegiance. "To me, it's not whether he's a Republican or Democrat or if I'm a Republican or Democrat. We have our opinions," she said. "I vote based on the candidate." DioGuardi says her dad is a smart guy; 25 years ago he even “predicted the deficit was way more than what they [Congress] said.” Still she won’t be campaigning for him because she’s pretty busy. "If I have one more job, I will fall apart,” said the “Idol” decider and songwriter.
