Extra points if you can guess which Presidential Candidate from the 1970s used the title of this blog post as a campaign song answer at the bottom.
Hillary Clinton is going into Round Two of her contest to find a campaign song (her video announcing it is actually pretty humorous.) Here are the entries we have so far:
Hillary Clinton: "Get Off Of My Cloud" by the Rolling Stones, Killer Queen by Queen
John Edwards: Theme from the musical Hair
Jim Gilmore: "I Walk the Line" by Johnny Cash
Newt Gingrich: "Our Time Is Coming" by Brooks & Dunn
Rudy Giuliani: Mama Im a Big Girl Now from the musical Hairspray, My Next Ex-wife by Little Charlie and the Nightcats
Mike Huckabee: "Hard Times For An Honest Man" by John Mellencamp
Dennis Kucinich: "Mr. Spaceman by the Byrds
John McCain: "Glory Days" by Bruce Springsteen
Barak Obama: "You Can't Always Get What You Want." By the Rolling Stones, in apparent response to Mrs. Clinton
Ron Paul: "Change the World" by Eric Clapton, "My Life" by Billy Joel, "I'm Not Running Anymore" by John Mellencamp. Last contributors note: If you want to ruin your own campaign, suggesting 9-11 was retribution for American actions abroad is a great place to start. Ron Paul will be singing this song very soon.
Mitt Romney: I Want You to Want Me by Cheap Trick
Tom Tancredo: "It's a Long Way to the Top" by AC/DC, Oye Como Va" by Santana
Fred Thompson: "Our Time Is Coming" by Brooks & Dunn, Have a Cigar by Pink Floyd
* Democratic candidate George McGovern in 1972. Give yourself a demerit if you guessed Ted Kennedy.
