I wouldn't be surprised if Obama carefully picked those songs for political effect. Maybe even focus grouped it. A little bit of everything, in order to appeal to everyone. I think he left eyelids out though. And as for McCain, Abba???! I can see Frank, Roy and Louie, but Abba? Man, he's making it harder and harder to pull the lever for him. :D
