Last summer I took a macroeconomics class at a local university (University of the Pacific) and got an A.
How much does this help college admissions (it's somewhat related to my intended major, political science.)

Yes, it helps! Do it! There's space on many apps to list any "college level" courses you've taken. This is "showing initiative," "going beyond the classroom." It looks great.

Could you include drivers ed on that if you took it at a community college or can you only list credit bearing classes.

I don't think driver's ed will help you much: everyone has to take that somewhere.

I will have 15 college credits when I apply to colleges. I've been told by members on this forum that 15 credits are "nothing," so I don't know what to tell you.

If the college you attend accepts all 15 credits, it definitly is not "nothing." 15 credits is a full semester's worth of class. If all 15 are applicable towards your degree, you may be able to graduate early or take a lot less classes. You will save time and money.
People on this board tells you its nothing because a lot of ppl here has 25+, but 15 is def not nothing
