When I first heard that Hillary Clinton had finally chosen a campaign song, and it was sung by Celine Dion, I figured that the theme song from the movie Titanic was the perfect choice. It wasn’t that song, however, and Hillary lost any opportunity she had to convince me that she was going to be honest with herself and the rest of us.
This must be disappointing to Republicans. Hillary chose a song, and after weeks of conservative speculation, the winning choice did not end up being “The bitch is back,” “Cold as ice,” “Devil with the blue dress on,” “Fat-bottomed girls” or “Went to bed with a ’10’ and woke up with a ‘2’.”
The song Hillary’s campaign chose is “You and I,” a song sung by Celine Dion (this is sure to help shore up the male vote) and written by Aldo Nova and Jacques Duval. All of the above are Canadians. This was Hillary’s first chance as a candidate to give major exposure and even more work to Americans and she outsourced instead.
The song “You and I” was used years ago in an Air Canada commercial, a video of which is here. The shot of the plane at the end of the ad that looks as if it’s close to over-banking and plunging to earth is a fitting metaphor for Hillary’s presidential hopes. Unfortunately, we’re all living on the ground below.
All this Canadian attention has me wondering how long it will be until Hillary suddenly becomes a life-long Toronto Maple Leafs fan, eh?
Update: Here’s the chorus from Hillary’s new campaign song:
You and I
Were meant to fly
Higher than the clouds
WeÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ll sail across the sky
So come with me
And you will feel
That weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re soaring
That weÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re floating up so high
Ã¢â‚¬ËœCause you and I were meant to fly
Hillary liked these lyrics as they provide a subliminal reminder that Vicodin would be covered 100% under her health plan.
