Hillary Clinton Picks Campaign Song

Video Is Great, Soundtrack Is Awful

By Published on .

With almost a full 1% of 1% of the country eagerly awaiting, Hillary Clinton today announced the choice of her campaign song via video. The video, which can be found here, is nothing short of genius. It incorporates her husband and the final episode of "The Sopranos." But if you want to skip the festivities (and trust me, the video is the highlight here), I'll just tell you it's Celine Dion's "You and I." If this is any indication of the choices she'll make while running the country, we're all in trouble. (Go here to hear the song. I'll say this much for it ... like this post, it's mostly grammatically correct.) But go ahead and watch the video. One of the best things about it is that the only music you actually hear is Journey's "Don't Stop Believin,'" which would have been the better choice.

My colleague Dan Leif writes in: "This video prompted a load of questions. Why did she pick a song by a Canadian? Who is that dude who stares her down in the video? What kind of diner serves a basket of carrots? Why is anyone mentioning Smashmouth in anything anywhere?"

Another colleague, who'll remain anonymous, comments: "Should do for Hillary what Celine Dion did for Chrysler."
