Mix Tape for Maggie's China trip

Mix tapes are the best medicine for travel and semi-bad news. And Madame Secretary's got a bit of both to contend with. With the less than glowing NAEP results on progress in closing achievement gaps, the battle over NCLB reauthorization, and her crazy long flight home from China in mind, I suggest the following:

1) "The Sign" - Ace of Base (for NAEP part 1)
2) "Big Girls Don't Cry" - Fergie (for NAEP part 2)
3) "You're So Vain" - Carly Simon (for George Miller)
4) "Lost in Your Eyes" - Debbie Gibson (for Buck McKeon)
5) "One Shot" - Eminem (NCLB anthem)
6) "Not Ready to Make Nice" - The Dixie Chicks (for irony)
7) "Opposites Attract" - Paula Abdul (for Reg Weaver)
8) "Drunk and Hot Girls" - Kanye West (shout out to Eli and Bill)
9) "Friends in Low Places" - Garth Brooks (for POTUS)
10) "The Right Stuff" - New Kids on the Block (positive psychology part 1)
11) "I'm Too Sexy" - Right Said Fred (positive psychology part 2)
12) "Faith" - George Michael (positive psychology part 3)

How about "The Eyes of Texas"? (for her political aspirations)
