The Cat Really Came Back

Way back in 2008, when a long-forgotten political hack named Hillary Clinton was running for President, she experienced some tough times. But she made a comback, and this cartoon appeared in the mainstream press (well, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, however mainstream that is.) While others have recorded this song, no one managed it like Cisco. This is the song that made me a fan back in 1964 when I was 9 years old. Clearly Cisco liked it. His performance remains the finest I know of, and my absolute favorite of his.

How many viewers of this cartoon would have been able to connect Hillary Clinton's revived fortunes, however temporary,after the New Hampshire primary with this song? Regardless of performer. Thank you Roger Harvell (whom I have tried to contact, but with no success.)

I sure hope ths lyrics are not prescient....
