I got an email from the Obama campaign today with an excerpt from his recent speech in Iowa that is gettting such good reviews. From the attached video I see that Obama's intro music is the same as that of the Chicago Bulls (Alan Parsons Project "Sirius"), made famous during Michael Jordan's championship run in the 90s. Even the "Obama" in lights is an echo of the old Bulls introduction. I half expected Obama to come out in warm ups.

He's quite right. Check out the Obama introduction in Des Moines, then look at this video of the Bulls getting introduced.
