The internet giveth, and the internet taketh away. Today the internet was in full-blown "giveth" mode, when the PAC "Stand With Hillary" released this absolutely glorious gem of a country song begging her to run for president in 2016.
You literally can't make this stuff up.
Looking back in time, learning hindsight’s always right. We came together in ‘08, a defining moment we all can celebrate. And now it’s 20-16 and this time I’m a thinking, Guys, put your boots on and let’s smash this ceiling.
Oh I been thinkin’ about one great lady Like the women in my life, She’s a mother, a daughter, and through it all she’s a loving wife.
Oh, there is something about her…this great lady. Caring, hard working once a First lady She fights for country n my family. Now it’s time for us to Stand Up with Hillary Hillary. Stand with Hillary
The video includes various throwback pictures of the Clinton family interspersed with images of blue-collar, working-class rural America.
Naturally, Twitter reacted appropriately:

Someone literally took the time to write an entire song AND THEN MADE A VIDEO for Hillary Clinton. Is this real life?!— Krystle (@TarheelKrystle) December 4, 2014
In the meantime, I'll just sit here patiently waiting for Stand With Hillary's pro-Hillary pop-punk ballad.
