Starticipatory Democracracy

Is this what the participatory democracy that Henry Jenkins celebrates has come to? The Town Hall Meeting meets American Idol? In the pseudo-contest to vote for Hillary Clinton's campaign song, there are clips from the bands U2, Smashmouth, the Dixie Chicks. The choices are heavy on new covers of old rock 'n' roll standards like "Right Here, Right Now" and "I'm a Believer."
