The 2008 Presidential Name Game

Hillary
Hillary, Hillary, bo Birley Bonana fanna fo Firley
Fee fy mo Mirley, Hillary

Obama, Obama, bo Bama Bonana fanna fo Fama
Fee fy mo Mama, Obama

Come on Americans
I say now let's play an electoral game
I betcha I can make a candidate out of anybody's name

Rudy
Rudy, Rudy, bo Borudy Bonana fanna fo Frudy
Fee fy mo Mudy Rudy

And there isn't any name that you can't rhyme

Everybody do Condi
Pretty good, let's do Newt
A little wit with Mitt
Very good, let's do McCain
The name game!
