Hillary can do the music-video thing too

Is Hillary Clinton’s response to Barack Obama’s "Yes, We Can" video meant to be taken as a campaign ad or the proposed theme for her new sitcom? It could go either way, and only the lady herself knows for sure. (In a less inclusive spirit, adding comments has been disabled from the YouTube video, so we’re deprived of any reaction from the unwashed masses.) As it is, Hillary deserves credit for stealing only half the melody from the Jackson Five and maybe a third of the soul from Up With People; a lesser person would have Pat Booned everything not nailed down from both groups. And if they do make a sitcom out of this fascinating glimpse into everything that’s wrong with white people, I for one demand that they cast Orrin Hatch as the the wacky neighbor.
