Obama's iPod a bit like his electorate: varied

President Barack Obama's iPod could pass for a voter outreach tool.

Obama ran through his musical tastes Monday during an interview on Cincinnati radio station WIZF. The list is eclectic and all-encompassing and reflects the varied coalition of voters he is seeking to attract.

Obama said old school artists include Stevie Wonder, James Brown, the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. More recent tracks are from Jay-Z, Eminem, and the Fugees. Jazz artists John Coltrane, Miles Davis and Gil Scott-Heron are also represented. Obama said there probably isn't a group the interviewer plays that isn't on the president's iPod.

No mention of The Boss, Bruce Springsteen, who has been campaigning for Obama.

Or country music. Much of that vote tilts to the other guy.
