Not every celebrity wants to get involved in politics. In the case of Marie Osmond, she'd go to extremes to avoid it.

While taking part in Washington's Cherry Blossom Festival this weekend, Osmond was asked by the right-wing website The Daily Caller whether she would endorse Republican candidate (and fellow Mormon) Mitt Romney or President Barack Obama in the November election.
