5 Selfish Reasons Every Musician Should Vote For Barack Obama

1. HE'S MORE LIKELY TO BUY YOUR CD – Barack Obama has eclectic musical tastes. He already has “everything from Howlin’ Wolf to Yo-Yo Ma to Sheryl Crow… (and) probably 30 Dylan songs" on his iPod. Why not you?

2. AMERICA WILL BE COOL AGAIN – Admit it. You've got worldwide ambitions and it hasn't helped that being American has become about as hip as being Donnie & Marie. Obama's already drawn a crowd in Germany bigger than Coachella and Bonnaroo combined.

3. TAXES – This is Music 2.0 and you are going to make a lot less than $250K a year. You'll pay less taxes under Obama.

4. HEALTH CARE – You can't stay on your parent's health care plan forever. You're self-employed now and there's a lot better chance that Obama's going to help you get coverage than McCain.

5. HE CAN DANCE
