Politico asked the 2024 presidential candidates to make a list of 20 songs that “stir their soul” and give them “instant joy.”

Most obvious? Chris Christie picking Bruce Springsteen and Bon Jovi. Least obvious? Asa Hutchinson listing a song by P!nk.


My answer would be Lyle Lovett, That’s Right, You’re Not From Texas. I wouldn’t bother with 19 more. I obviously am unworthy of the Presidency.
