An Embarrassingly Premature Obama Victory Party Mix

Posted: Updated:

The absolute last thing that any of us should be doing in the days to come is prematurely preparing for our victory parties. So instead, I started doing it first thing this morning. As my wife could point out, this is not the first time I've been premature.

Because I'm a music guy, I decided to begin the beguine by working on my own personal play list for my personal Obama victory party. Here's my first pass at the soundtrack for my own Democratic Party out of bounds.
