Western Swing for Obama

In case all the smear tactics, endless hours of phone calling and intravenous news injections are starting to wear you out, here's a musical salute to Obama, based on the old Western Swing classic, Choo-Choo-Cha-Boogie:

It takes me back to my brief Texas Swing phase in the early 70s. My father was on the radio as a member of Mickey Rider and His Harmonica Marvels in the 1930s. He was a monster harp player but kept it a secret (long story) until my mother made him play it once when I was in high school. He could play big band stuff on that thing, which until that time I didn’t even know was possible.
