This is ouuuuuuuuuuuur country!

Now I have to take issue with John Edwards because he's always saying there are 2 Americas. So, which of the two is claiming to be "our country"? I'll take the other one.

Candidates Pick Tunes at DNC Meeting

Everyone needs a soundtrack - even politicians.

The presidential candidates who addressed the Democratic National Committee's winter meeting Friday got to choose their tunes, and it was an eclectic mix that reflected personal favorites and not-so-subtle messages.

Some candidates requested two songs, one that blared as they approached the stage and another that played as they left the podium.

The selections:

_John Edwards: "This Is Our Country" by John Mellencamp.

_Sen. Chris Dodd of Connecticut: "Get Ready (Cause Here I Come)" by the Temptations and "Reach Out," also by the Temptations.

_Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York: "Right Here, Right Now," by Jesus Jones and "Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" by Bachman-Turner Overdrive.

_Rep. Dennis Kucinich of Ohio: "America the Beautiful"

Sen. Barack Obama of Illinois decided against using any music in keeping with the somber tone he sought to convey.

Wesley Clark, who hasn't indicated whether he will run, entered to Johnny Cash's "I Won't Back Down."

I would have gone with the following:

Hillary: he Bitch is Back - Elton John

John Edwards: King Nothing - Metallica

Kucinich: Space Oddessey - David Bowie
