Clinton dances, asks voters to pick song
WASHINGTON (CNN) - New York Sen. Hillary Clinton posted a new video Thursday asking supporters to choose her presidential campaign song, combining a montage of video and suggestions sent into the campaign over the past week.
Clinton updates her supporters on her campaign song in a new web video.
"I turned to the American people for help in picking my campaign song, and they haven't disappointed," Clinton said in a statement. "From the off-beat to the brilliant, I'm excited that so many people have chosen to offer their suggestions and engage with our campaign online."
The video is posted on YouTube and her campaign's website. It starts with various home videos and random songs, which Clinton opinions were not her favorites choices. She then dances to "You and I" by Celine Dion, saying, "This is more like it."
The Democratic presidential contender ends the clip by encouraging people to go to her campaign's Web site to vote.
Clinton launched a text message effort last week to get people to vote for her campaign's theme song. According to her campaign, 130,000 people voted and the winner will be announced in the next few days.
