Cue the music

Was just switching back and forth between the Republican debate and Last of the Mohicans this evening. Hard not to notice that in practically every scene with Daniel Day-Lewis (as Hawkeye), the music would kick in and lend a certain romantic aura to whatever he was doing.

Had Mitt Romney, or any of the other candidates, arranged to have the stirring, majestic theme from Last of the Mohicans play whenever he -- and only he -- spoke, his words would undoubtedly have resonated more with the viewers. Heck, with that music playing in the background, the American people would have wanted to vote for him then and there.

Now that I think of it, I always sorta wished they'd strike up the James Bond theme whenever I entered a room....

John, I don't know if the words and actions of Mitt Romney, with music from Last of the Mohicans, would have the same effect as witnessing the half naked gorgeous body of Daniel Day Lewis running through the forest with his machete! Obviously Last of the Mohicans is one of my favourite movies! Donna

You've got good taste in movies.... That was about as good as Day-Lewis ever looked.
