John McCain's musical struggles

Picking a campaign song has proved difficult for all the candidates this political season: Mike Huckabee was forbidden from using Boston's "More Than A Feeling" (prompting an intraband squabble); Hillary Clinton allowed her tone-deaf supporters to choose her song and got stuck with a horrid Celine Dion tune; and even Barack Obama, seemingly the choice of the hip musical crowd, was told by Sam of the legendary R&B duo Sam and Dave to cease and desist playing his song "Hold on I'm Coming" at campaign events.

But no one has had as much trouble putting a beat and melody to his White House run than poor John McCain. I chronicle these struggles, and make some suggestions over at (Which you should check out if you haven't already.)
