I’m probably the last person in America to have seen this clip of President Obama singing a bit of Al Green’s “Let’s Stay Together,” but the American President’s Got Talent! Aside from candidate Bill Clinton playing sax on The Arsenio Hall Show so many moons ago, has any presidential candidate displayed his or her musical chops before? Has any sitting President or candidate come close to Obama’s display of musical talent, even caught on camera singning along in a church or something? Who cares about a candidate’s personal life, their stance on controversial issues, or how “presidential” their hair is? I want to know if a candidate’s got any musical chops!
Among our current crop of presidential candidates (and leading political figures), in the US or your own nation, what song would you most like to hear tackled by a particular politician?
