The music choices politicians make don't have to be flat out terrible. I'm good with Clinton and "Don't Stop", and one of the things that made Jimmy Carter seem sorta hip was that he quoted Dylan. That says it all when it comes to being hip in politics, though-- Jimmy Carter and Fleetwood Mac are as cool as it gets. I don't understand why this is so, but it appears that the Kerry campaign has the same Classic Rock disease as just about everybody else. From Salon: ' "All Right Now" is followed by the theme to "Rocky." "Revolution" starts but soon skips to the truly execrable "Eye of the Tiger" by '80s nightmare Survivor. The reporter beside me has been covering both campaigns for months. "Can Republican music be any worse than this?" he asks.'
