Paris -- Topic for Debate?

Click to return to TMZ.comIt's official: Paris Hilton is everywhere.

Somehow the recently freed heiress became a punchline during last night's Democratic presidential debate at Howard University. When Sen. Chris Dodd went a little too long with one of his answers, debate moderator Tavis Smiley joked, "Were you Paris Hilton, you can have an hour. But you're not."

Come to think of it, Dodd/Hilton sounds like an unbeatable ticket.
