This is too much fun!!

Which songs would you pick for these candidates?

WASHINGTON (AP) - Everyone needs a
soundtrack – even politicians.

The presidential candidates who addressed the Democratic National
Committee's winter meeting Friday got to choose their tunes, and it was an
eclectic mix that reflected personal favorites and not-so-subtle messages.

Some candidates requested two songs, one that blared as they approached
the stage and another that played as they left the podium.

The selections:
_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."

Clinton picking a BTO song is almost as ludricous as Dennis the Menace picking "America the Beautiful". Know any gravitas songs for the Obama kid?
