Obama, Obama, Obama. Be-dee-dee-da-dee-da-dee.

HILLARY addresses a huge campaign rally.

HILLARY: Hello, people. Let the conversation begin!

Applause.

HILLARY: What are we saying? We're saying we want a reality-based conversation. We're adults here. We can face the truth. And we can speak the truth to power!

A random face in the audience sings out -- to the tune of the Muppets' Mahna Mahna song

RANDOM DUDE: Barack Obama. Ba dee bedebe.

She shoots him a dirty look. He shuts up.

HILLARY: Why are we here? We're renewing the promise of America. We're in to win. We're working for change and working for you!

RANDOM DUDE: Barack Obama. Ba dee bedebe. Barack Obama! Be debebe dee! Barack Obama, Obama, Obama,dee dee de-de de-de-de.

She shoots him another dirty look.

HILLARY: What do we have to offer? What do we have that they don't. Strength and experience. The kind of strength and experience that makes change happen! The change we need. You know who I am. I'm the Hillary you know. I will turn up the heat and turn America around.

RANDOM DUDE: Barack Obama.

She glares at him. He clasps his hands over his mouth for a few beats. Then explodes.

RANDOM DUDE: Barack Obama! Obama! Obama! Obama -- dee dee de-de de-de-de!

The whole crowd starts singing.

RANDOM DUDE: Barack Obama. Ba dee bedebe.

HILLARY: Goddamnit.

She throws her notes in the air and walks away from the podium. The CROWD continues to sing, insanely.
