Can you imagine the heads exploding, and the election odds changing, if Obama belted out God bless A

America? Geez, if a little Al Green does it for us?

2. That song aint mixing church and state, it is part of our culture.

 

It would counter the shallow American Exceptionalism jingoism.

Or maybe John Meloncamp, aint that america, with Clinton on sax.

4. I'd prefer "My Country Tis of Thee" best, because of the line "... let freedom ring!"

but I'm listening to A People's History of the U.S. again, so I'm well aware of the historic limitations in most of "our" conventions about our country.

PO probably would not sing MCTTOT, though, because Dennis Kucinich has been known to sing it on occasion.

5. Or that patriotic Reagan fav, Born to be wild.

 

Sorry, that was "Born to Run". Springsteen.
