I’ll eliminate the suspense: I think it’s pretty silly. I understand the Clinton campaign’s desire to connect with its supporter base, develop loyalty, establish brand identity, and increase its candidate’s accessibility.
Nothing wrong with that. But those goals could have been accomplished in ways that touch on issues facing the U.S. and the world, too. The way it was done seems a little shallow.
However, I did enjoy the spot announcing the end of the contest, which pays homage to the Sopranos and, more importantly, to Mt. Kisco Coach diner. The diner is a local fave for those of us from the Chappaqua/Mt. Kisco, NY area, as well as my destination as a teenager for many a breakfast and late night snack.
So in sum, Hillary’s campaign song contest may lack in substance, but it is high on local flavor and sentimental appeal.
I’ve been away from the blog for a few days and should be back soon – with plenty of exciting stuff to report on and a few random thoughts here and there, too.
