Obama School Kid Song Written By Norah O'Donnell

BURLINGTON TOWNSHIP, NJ - A song by B. Bernice Young Elementary School kids in praise of President Obama was written by MSNBC correspondent Norah O'Donnell. According to an anonymous source, the 'Mmmm Mmmm Obama' tune was penned by O'Donnell during the 2008 presidential campaign. "Norah was listening to an Obama speech, swaying back and forth, enraptured by the marvelous cadence and power of his words," recalled the source. "Suddenly, she began humming 'mmmm mmmm,' then adding lyrics such as 'He said red, black, yellow or white/All are equal in his sight.' It was so spontaneous and real. Before you knew it, everyone on every network but Fox was singing along." O'Donnell tried teaching the lyrics to MSNBC's Keith Olbermann but he was unable to complete a verse without raging and screaming. "Norah felt Keith was hurting the song's tone of pure, innocent worship. So she gave him a belt to chew on." (Photo:
