image for Obama declares Beyoncé's musical chart topper 'To the Left, To the Left' as his official 2008 Presidential campaign theme song
Obama says: I will take you, America, 'To the Left, To the Left', if you vote for me in 2008

Washington, D.C. - Barack Obama has announced today that Beyoncé's popular musical chart topper, "To the Left, To the Left," is now his official 2008 Presidential campaign song. However, the decision to go with the song caused a rift in the Obama camp, as many believed the song would isolate moderate voters who tend to disassociate themselves with anything liberal. To which Obama responded, "You must not know of me."

There are two ways the American voting public can take it: One, that Obama in so choosing the song he is telling the American people that he will move American to the left. Two, he is telling Bush that his days in the White House are numbered, as the song refers to kicking out an unfaithful lover and placing all their belongings into a box in the closet to the left.

"If it is his intention to tell the American people that he is moving the country to the left, he could not have chosen a better song," said Richard Nero, political scientist. "The country has swung so far to the Right of the political spectrum that a major course correction is needed just to get it back to the Center."

"The American people may find it offensive that Obama is telling Bush in so many words, 'Move out of the White House," said Buster Loft, political campaign consultant. "They may find it too presumptuous on his part."

Obama campaigners are expected to begin playing the song at all official functions sometime this week.
