The Lyrics

Barack's quite the phenomenon... but if you want real change, then hand the reins of power, like you would a TV remote, to a woman rather than to a guy (for the 44th time). And will some Dems wake up/grow up/wise up about Hillary and realize how special she is? Sure, she puts her pantsuit on one leg at a time like a mere mortal, but hers is a special asbestos-kevlar number because the woman gets torched and shot at every single freaking day of her life. Would you or I, or even Barry Obama, still be smiling and styling, not to mention winning our party's race for the Presidential nomination, after 16+ years of being America's punching bag? I'm gonna say no.
Stands there boldly, saying he’s the one
Felt by the millions, fueled by record sums
You like his numbers, you’ve never felt this strong
Like Barack

Bill was aces, winning you a pair
Served the people, fought to end despair
But now you're seeing a sorry racist there
Like Barack

She stands there bloodied, despised and vilified
Hiding all her burdens, projecting female pride
Atop the hill, you’ll throw her off the side
Like Barack

Like Barack - hard and cold as you can be
Like Barack – cut the past off at the knees
Like Barack – is there something to see
Like Barack


BRIDGE:
He looks tall and straight
Unencumbered by the freight
Of all the old tussles it would seem
You look wowed but by Fall
Time reveals all
Will you still be electing a dream?


Sixteen years now, where’d they go
Sixteen years of the Clinton show
We sit back in wonder sometimes
At where they’ve gone

But sometime late one night
Oh when you’re baked in the firelight
Some truth'll come calling you know is right
And you’ll feel small
You’ll feel small

Like Barack – the man without a slate
Like Barack – CHANGE just sounds so great
Like Barack – carrying your hate
Like Barack

Ooh Like Barack – he’s got no estrogen
Like Barack – a Harvard guy again
Like Barack – do we need more alpha men
Like Barack

Ooh like Barack
Getting in touch with my inner feminist and standing up for the Hil. --Stormin the nag

Awww...why did you have to dis my guy? Why is he racist? Well, you might have a point about Harvard and alpha men. I like Hillary, too; I wished I could've cast two votes. From me, 5-2-3. BTW, people, if you disagree with the message but the pacing matches the OS, you don't give "1" for the pacing! Give credit where it's due! Truthfully, I only know the OS somewhat but I'll give you the benefit of the doubt. Again, 5-2-3.

Tell me, Norman what has Hillary said she will do in the White House that trumps what Barack has said he will do in the White House? i have a feeling you will not have an answer to that question. A fair and balanced 534 from me.

Hi Melanie and Agrimorfee, thanks for taking the time to read and respond...and to question! Melanie, I'm not saying Barack is a racist, I'm saying there are Dems who have turned on Bill Clinton and branded him a racist...like Barack has done, in some subtle and some not-so-subtle ways (the 'standing in the way of the dream...disenfranchising the lowly Vegas busboy' comments from him and his wife and others, designed to paint Bill and Hil as Big Whitey). And thanks for calling out the "1's" weasel! Agrimorfee, in response to your question, 'nothing'. But what has Barack done in public life that trumps what Hillary's done and will bring to the job, experience-wise? And if the election is about change, then don't we get more by electing Hillary, thereby signalling to HALF of all Americans that the door to the Oval Office is no longer closed to them just because they're "girls"? Your 'fair and balanced' reference chilled my blood with the Factor vibe, but thanks for an F&B vote.

If the ability to smile and style after being a punching bag is what qualifies someone to be president, then it is unfortunate that the 22nd amendment prevents George W. Bush from running again.

Hey JJ, hi, and nice try. I wrote that the 16-yr punching bag/smiling and styling thing was worthy of props from those Dems who don't recognize Superwoman when they see her. Don't put words in my mouth just so you can practice your William F. Buckley, Jr. arch comment schtick on me! Take care...
