Senator Clinton's iPod
The candidate-is-regular-folks shenanigans begin:
Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has joined the portable music player generation.
Motown tunes, classical music and the Rolling Stones are all on the playlist on Clinton's iPod player, she told the New York Post for Monday editions.
"I've got everything - a total smorgasbord," the 58-year-old senator said.
Songs from Clinton's youth figure heavily in the selection of about 1,000 songs, said Clinton, who called herself "a child of the '60s and '70s." The mix includes Aretha Franklin's "Respect," the Beatles' "Hey Jude" and "Take it to the Limit" by The Eagles, she said.
Clinton, a possible presidential candidate in 2008 who is running for re-election to the Senate this year, said her favorite time to listen to the device is when she's following up on paperwork at home.
She received the popular portable music player as a birthday gift from her husband, former President Bill Clinton, she said.
Someone needs to gift the Senator an iMix with some music from the last decade. I think she should be rolling into the Senate chamber rocking some Missy Elliott.
