Campaigning is about convincing voters that you are smart and capable enough to lead them, but it's also important to show people that you are "one of them." Just a regular gal or guy who can relate to the problems facing the everyday, average person on the street. For some reason, this inevitably involves busting a move to some popular or culturally-significant song.
