I'm Indecisive...Or Maybe Not

Sometimes the best news stories come from out of the blue, or in this case, Blue State America. Seems Presidential hopeful Hillary Clinton is asking supporters on her website to help her pick a campaign theme song. Apparently, John Edwards already claimed "Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves" for his theme song...

I can understand a little why Hillary did this. She is intent on "chatting" with the people and what better way than to involve them in a facet of her campaign? It's a nice way to connect with voters and potential voters.

Of course, I'm thinking it's a tremendous blunder on her part, not because she's a Democrat, but because it opens her up to criticisms of her being indecisive. A campaign song in the grand scheme of things is a pretty minor thing, but she has to let her supporters make that call? Imagine for a moment that Hillary wins the 2008 election. Do you think she'll put a poll up on the White House website whenever she has to decide on a major issue? I would hope not, but given that it's a Clinton, it wouldn't surprise me. Her husband tended to lead by focus group instead of by principle or gut instinct.

Granted, this might be a little harsh on Hillary. She might just be doing it as a show of faith or as a way to open up to the country. Nothing wrong with that in the least. In fact, it's inspired me to help! Hillary, let me know what you think of these suggestions.

"Little Lies" by Fleetwood Mac
"Sweet Home Chicago" by the Blues Brothers (since she's really from there, not New York)
"The Lady Is A Tramp" by Frank Sinatra
"Surrender" by Cheap Trick
"Sold Me Down the River" by The Alarm
"Taxman" by The Beatles

And my personal favorite...

"Liar" by the Rollins Band

Have your people call my people, Hill. We'll do lunch or something...
