Apparently Hillary Clinton is trying to find a new campaign song and she has asked people to vote on her web site for which song she should use (after my run in with her staffer I looked for John Michael Montgomerys I Swear but it wasnt there.) I thought it might be fun to start a contest for the other candidates. This is not the place to give your opinions on the candidate (the IRS would love that!) but give a song and a brief explanation of why. Such as Im Gonna Wash That Man Right Out of My Hair for Senator John Edwards of the $400 coiffure; or Lits My Own Worst Enemy for Newt Gingrich; or Who Are You by The Who for Mike Gravel (or a number of others.) Self described environmentalist Al Gore can have It Aint Easy Bein Green by Kermit the Frog and Rudy Giuliani (who seems to dress up a lot in dresses) can campaign to Dude (Looks Like a Lady) by Aerosmith. Here is list of the candidates sing away:
*The earliest known American election campaign song was God Save George Washington, issued in 1780 and sung to the tune of God Save The King.
