'People Have The Power': A Playlist for Election Day 2012

I really dig this whole democracy thing, and our screwed up but touching search for common ground. In fact, last night I had the strangest dream: reaching across the political divide, Fox News offered to call Kenya for President Obama if MSNBC called The Cayman Islands for Mitt Romney. Now that probably won't happen, but soon we will see whose political dreams come true. Until then, here's my 2012 Election Day Playlist, with a few democratically selected suggestions from my followers of all political persuasions @Wildaboutmusic. Please support the American way, and vote for your own favorites below. Also please check out my friend Sheryl Crow's new song "Put A Woman In The White House" for future reference. For the right Party with some common sense, it's a big hit.
