Hillary Clinton may or may not make a good president, but there’s near unanimity in opinionland that you shouldn’t let her DJ your next party. The selection of Celine Dion’s “You and I” as the winner of Sen. Clinton’s online campaign-song contest has received denunciation across the political spectrum.
Mother Jones’s Jonathan Stein presents the leftist critique: “great if you like shrieking Canadians and awful if you have taste.” The New Republic’s Michael Crowley advances the unconventional neoliberal/neocon slant: “pretty lame.” And National Review’s Jonah Goldberg adheres to the conservative line: “really bad.”
The “Sopranos” spoof starring both Clintons and Johnny Sack that the campaign uses to introduce the choice, on the other hand, garners nearly unanimous praise.
