No Love From McCain or Obama

If your  vote was based on music taste, who would it be? Blender Magazine put out a list of Obama and McCain’s all-time top ten songs- not a single Latino jam made the presidential cut. Not even Santana or anyone else that usually makes the generic old man top ten list made it.  What does this tell us about the music taste of our next president? You would think their advisors would throw in there some Latino love just for strategy kicks, or that someone would tell McCain that Dancing Queen is not an acceptable #1.
