[Edit: It should be noted that everything in this post except the "Pretty Goes with Pretty reactions" (obviously) and the final verdict was copied and pasted directly from the LAT article.]
Campaign soundtrack: "Gonna Fly Now (Theme From 'Rocky')", ABBA's "Take a Chance on Me" and "Johnny B. Goode" by Chuck Berry
Favorite TV show: "Prison Break"
On the iPod: "I have an iPod with Beach Boys, Roy Orbison – I have a varied taste in music between very good music and not-so-good music, but most of my advancement in music appreciation stopped the day I was shot down in October of 1967."
Pretty Goes with Pretty reaction: Fuuuuuuuuuuck. It's hard to fuck with a dude who throws his POW ordeal in your face when you ask him who is favorite band is. Speaking of, it would blow my mind to hear him talk back to his TV during an episode of Prisonbreak. (Additionally, I like that he likes good music and he also likes not-so-good music--lest he offend people who really love not-so-good music. Ever the politician.)
Campaign soundtrack: Celine Dion's "You and I"
Favorite TV show: "American Idol," "Grey's Anatomy," "Dancing With the Stars," and HGTV makeover shows
On iPod: Clinton told the Associated Press in the spring of 2006 that she received her iPod as a gift from her husband. At that time, songs included Aretha Franklin’s “Respect,” the Beatles’ “Hey Jude” and “Take it to the Limit” by The Eagles.
Pretty Goes with Pretty reaction: the transparency of her clearly pandering choices for favorite television show are a great example of why I don't want her to win the nomination. I do, however, believe that she likes the Eagles. However, taking her campaign song into account, apparently Clinton and McCain could reach across the aisle in their love of not-so-good music.
Campaign soundtrack: Elvis Presley's "A Little Less Conversation"
Favorite TV show: “Lost”
On the iPod: “What I typically download is country music as well as 1960s music. I'm a baby boomer so The Beatles and The Stones and some of the old groups from the '60s are my favorites; I listen to them. And I also listen to country. I have some inspirational music as well, but those are the highlights for me."
Pretty Goes with Pretty reaction: This is the first guy that I think gave honest answers.
Campaign soundtrack: John Mayer’s “Waiting on the World to Change,” Ben Harper’s “Better Way”
Favorite TV show: HBO’s “The Wire” and Sportscenter
On the iPod: “I won’t let Apple release the new and improved iPod the day after you bought the previous model.” (From "Top Ten Campaign Promises" as read by David Letterman on the "Late Show.")
Pretty Goes with Pretty reaction: Sadly, the LA Times could not find a real answer to the last question. Meanwhile, let's look at his TV choice and compare it to Clinton's: this is where Obama's long-trumpeted good judgement comes in. Do you want someone in the White House who checks the Nielsen ratings before choosing what to watch, or do you want someone who can survey the field and say "goddamn, The Wire is the best show on television. I'm watching that." Further confirmation that Obama is my candidate.
Campaign soundtrack: Anything by the Rolling Stones
Favorite movies: “The Godfather,” “Casablanca,” “To Kill a Mockingbird” and “Citizen Kane “
Favorite TV shows: “The Colbert Report,” “The Sopranos”
Pretty Goes with Pretty reaction: Based on the fact the Times article mentions that Huckabee let Keith Richards off on a parking violation in Arkansas, I will accept answer #1 as true. The rest, if they are true, point to someone who at least consulted the AFI Best Films of All Time list rather than Variety's list of biggest blockbusters.
(The article profiles Ron Paul too but all the answers are lame.)
Final Verdict: Looks like we need to see an Obama/Romney match-up if we want to have any sort of real
