Did You Know?
During the 2002 Iraqi election, Saddam Hussein‘s campaign song was the Arabic version of Whitney Houston‘s song, ‘I Will Always Love You‘.
“I Will Always Vote for You”:
Party officials have chosen the Whitney Houston song “I Will Always Love You” as the campaign theme tune. The song accompanies the dawn-to-dusk election broadcasts on the three state-controlled television stations, which feature almost continuous footage of Saddam. He is shown praying, kissing children, firing an ancient rifle one-handed, waving to the masses and striking heroic poses.
