The Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has a playful, evasive manner of speech. Some call this spin, others poetry. When musician Phil Kline ran across a collection of Rumsfeld quotes, he was so taken with the rhetoric that he composed music to accompany the text. In his Three Rumsfeld Songs, Kline sets remarks made by the Defense Secretary to surprisingly beautiful music. Produced by David Krasnow.
