Help Hillary Find a Theme Song Contest

I want to give everyone an update on our contest (details and rules here) and our 200,000 page view milestone.

First, we passed 200,000 sometime today, possibly a day or two earlier than I expected. I want to thank everyone for stopping by, even if they were just hoping to see a picture of Jessica Simpson. Will you settle for a picture of OJ Simpson instead? In all seriousness, thanks. We're still smaller than many blogs, but we're larger than a few, and we're having an impact. I say "we" because I'm only the messenger. Somebody has to actually do something, and quite often that somebody is one of my readers. Now do something useful.

Next, a contest update:

We're having so much fun trying to help Hillary Clinton find her theme song, we're going to run this contest through Friday at midnight. Doreen and I are going to have a tough time picking a winner. Note to Dave in SF, you get points for making a music video. You lose points because it's Sondheim.

To enter, make a comment for this blog post using a valid e-mail address, or send me an e-mail at As entries are received I will post them as quickly as I can. If two people submit the winning song, it will be the entry that was received first.
