If Bill Clinton wanted to build a bridge to the 21st century, his wife must tread in the new campaign terrain of this century's online politicking. On Tuesday, the Hillary Clinton campaign, amid much fanfare, released their official campaign song, as voted on by the general public.
The official campaign tune is "You and I" by Celine Dion.
Dion, by the way, is Canadian.
The campaign reports there were more than 200,000 votes and more than 25,000 write-in suggestions. And Clinton's two YouTube videos announcing a theme song contest were watched more than 1 million times.
Of course, that pales in comparison to the hottest political video on the net, a love ballad by "Obama Girl" to Barack Obama, where she seductively promises "you'll get your head of state."
The video has gotten 1.38 million hits since last Wednesday, though it was not produced by the official Obama campaign
See the video below:
And here's the full text of "You and I" by Dion. You can listen to it here.
High above the mountains, far across the sea
I can hear your voice calling out to me
Brighter than the sun and darker than the night
I can see your love shining like a light
And on and on this earth spins like a carousel
If I could travel across the world
The secrets I would tell
You and I
Were meant to fly
Higher than the clouds
We'll sail across the sky
So come with me
And you will feel
That we're soaring
That we're floating up so high
â€˜Cause you and I were meant to fly
Sailing like a bird high on the wings of love
Take me higher than all the stars above
I'm burning, yearning
Gently turning round and round
I'm always rising up I never
Want to come back down
You and I were meant to fly
