    I know I heard the song played numerous times at Bush's rallies, but I didn't know it was his theme song. A winning song for a winning candidate. Just a final note on the campaign. Several people have made the comment that Bush isn't legitimat because he lost the popular vote. Well, there are 400,000 uncounted ballots in New York alone. It is by no means certain who won the popular vote. For all we know, Bush may have won by over 100,000 votes but the polls finished counting early, predicting the state going to Gore/ or Bush. No one will ever know for certain who won the popular vote.

    I wonder if Bush got permission to use it.

    And I wonder if he was able to ask any questions about the status of the band who wrote and recorded it, specifically the position of singer

    Right Now, it's safe to add one (1) to my post count.
    Right Now, strange is beautiful.
    Right Now, I'm a Dirty Faced Kid.
    Right Now, Van Halen needs to HURRY UP AND SAY SOMETHING.
    Right Now, I must be going.

    I'm pretty sure it was GORE who used "Right Now" in his campaign. One of my friends at school went to a Gore rally in Chicago, and when I asked him about it, he told me how they played Right Now, and I should have gone just to hear a Van Halen song.

    It's possible both Bush and Gore used the song. I dunno. I know Gore did. I think Gore used it on TV, too.

    By the way, Bush's campaign song should have been Sucker In A Three Piece.

    Funny, I thought that just because the election was over, so too would be the political threads... My bad, huh?

    Hooligan, take it from a Republican who lives in the state of which you speak - Gore won New York.

    He also won the popular vote.

    I don't dig it either, bro.

    Listen, if you really have beef with the popular vote tally, all you have to do is cut and paste what you wrote here in one of the other TWO political threads.

    Thought you'd have known the drill by now : One bar thread, one Britney thread, TWO political threads.

    And for the record, both Gore and Bush used "Right Now."

    So, keeping in the spirit of the video...

    "Right Now," this thread is closed.

    OK, but he does have a point on the accuracy of the popular vote

    Yeah, but he's talking about a "What-If" scenario.

    What's done is done.

    (Damn bro, you made me sound like a Gore sympathizer. LOL )
