Hillary’s Song

HILLARY’S SONG….OK, I have to admit that Hillary Clinton’s latest spot is pretty cute. She sure is a lousy actress, though. Luckily, we’re electing a president, not an actress, so who cares?

Can’t say that I like the song pick much, though. But then, we’re electing a president, not a deejay, so who cares?

POSTSCRIPT: Seriously, though, voice lessons would probably gain her a couple million votes. Ditto for some of the other candidates. Do they just not get this? Or have they tried and failed? Or what? Considering how important media spots are to modern campaigns, it’s astonishing that so few candidates really seem to take this seriously.
