Democratic Candidates Pick Theme Songs

Linkfest Haven, the Blogger's Oasis

The Democrats who hope to be the next President selected their theme songs at the winter meeting of the DNC. Here are the songs they selected:

_John Edwards: “This Is Our Country” by John Mellencamp.

Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut: “Get Ready (Cause Here I Come)” by the Temptations and “Reach Out,” also by the Temptations.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York: “Right Here, Right Now,” by Jesus Jones and “Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet” by Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio: “America the Beautiful”

Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois decided against using any music in keeping with the somber tone he sought to convey.

Wesley Clark, who hasn’t indicated whether he will run, entered to Johnny Cash’s “I Won’t Back Down.”

Here are my picks for their songs:

John Edwards, “I Feel Pretty” from West Side Story.

Christopher Dodd, “Running on Empty” by Jackson Browne.

Hillary Rodham Clinton, “The Bitch is Back” by Elton John and “Killer Queen” by Queen.

Dennis Kucinich, “For What its Worth” by Buffalo Springfield.

Barack Obama, “Back in Black” by AC/DC.

Wesley Clark, “One Tin Soldier” by Coven.

Now that more appropriately sums up the themes of the would be leaders.
