A Playlist for Hillary

Hillary Clinton has an iPod. Yeah, and so do Condi, Dubya, and at least half of Washington, based on my observations during the morning and evening commutes. What’s on it is the real interesting question.

“I’ve got everything — a total smorgasbord,” the 58-year-old senator said.

Songs from Clinton’s youth figure heavily in the selection of about 1,000 songs, said Clinton, who called herself “a child of the ’60s and ’70s.” The mix includes Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” the Beatles’ “Hey Jude” and “Take it to the Limit” by The Eagles, she said.

C’mon Hillary. Gimme some titles that say something about you. Put Tammy Wynette’s “Stand By Your Man” on there. And if you’re into Aretha, I might suggest “Do Right Woman, Do Right Man.” And while we’re at it, if you want to hint at your politics of late I’d suggest “Time Warp” from Rocky Horror. (I’m specifically thinking of the lyrics “It’s just a jump to the left, and then a step to the right…”.)

Those are my suggestions, anyway. Anybody out there got some more appropriate suggestions for HIllary?
