What they're sayin':
  • Have you read any of his tweets lately, Pete?  “Unity will be an essential part of his speech, but achieving unity will be much easier said than done, particularly after a very divisive campaign.  He must challenge us to look beyond politics and tell us specifically how he plans to make us a better, more prosperous and safer America."
  • "Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows/Everything that's wonderful is what I feel when we're together“.  "You’ve got to be somewhat optimistic.  If the president does well, the country does well.”
  • "Brighter than a lucky penny/When you're near the rain just disappears, dear.“   People need jobs, and they need higher wages. Don’t send the jobs overseas — keep them here in America.  He’s been talking, but I’m waiting to see if he has the power to push these things through.”

Now that you have a certain tune in your head.
