Can you believe it’s already time to start judging presidential hopefuls based on their entry or exit music?
It’s nearly the middle of June, which means 2019 is almost halfway done, and with 2020 being a presidential election year in the U.S., it’s never too soon to find out which politicians are red-blooded Americans and which ones have their younger campaign staffers pick their songs.
A list was published showing the songs selected by 19 Democratic would-be nominees as part of last weekend’s Iowa Democratic Hall of Fame dinner.
Based on these selections, who gets your vote?
Corey Booker: Lovely Day, Bill Withers
Eric Swalwell: Caught Up in the Country, Rodney Atkins
Bernie Sanders: Power to the People (Not sure if he went with Curtis Mayfield or John Lennon or a different song)
Tulsi Gabbard: Ain’t No Mountain High Enough, Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell
Pete Buttigieg: Never Giving Up, Batchelor
Kamala Harris: Work That, Mary J. Blige
John Delaney: I’ve Been Everywhere, Johnny Cash
