Political junkies will love this song: “Why Don’t You Run for President?”

There are about two dozen people in the running to be the Democratic candidate for president in the 2020 election. Keep track of everyone is nigh impossible. Sure there’s Biden and Beto and Buttigieg and Bernie and Bill along with Amy and Liz and Kamala and Kirsten. But Jay Inslee? Wayne Messam? Mike Gravel?

Songwriting Karen Sokolof Javitch is confused, too. That’s the genesis of this song called “Why Don’t You Run for President?”
