In the last debate, the candidates were asked their favorite song.
What answer to this question would be best if one wanted to win? Should one just tell the truth, even if it's weird, should one refuse to answer (like questions about underwear or sex), or should one make up an answer that would resonate with the most voters? If you choose the last option, then what song would you suggest?

1. What did Kerry say? I forgot.
Edited on Sun Sep-14-03 02:30 PM by tjdee
I can't remember what half of them said, but it's such a minor question. Presidents are asked all kind of dumb questions.

I think last time Gore was asked about his favorite book, Bush said his was "The Little Caterpillar", Oprah asked both about their favorite songs, too.

I think you should just give the answer, and not play around. I think some candidates were less than honest, but maybe that's just my opinion.

3. Lieberman said don't stop thinking about tommorow
Kucinich said Imagine. Dean said a Wyclef Jean song. Kerry said a Springsteen song, I don't know what it was called.

5. It sure does.
It goes well with his "Imagine America" speech. You can listen to it here:

6. Edwards: John Mellencamp - Small Town.
That's his "intro" song. And a good one.

7. Eh, would have preferred Ain't that America.
But I can see where he'd go with Small Town.

Like both songs, Mellencamp is A-OK with me.
