Obama & Romney make cameos at country music awards

Neither of them strikes me as a country music fan, but they're both apparently "going country" this week with in an appearance at this year's CMT Music Awards Wednesday:

The video starts with a faux news report in which the award show's co-hosts -- actress Kristen Bell and country star Toby Keith -- debate about who should host. This prompts a campaign of sorts to see who will win the spotlight:

"This is one of the toughest decisions I've had to make since I've been in office. But I think I've decided."

He then walked to his desk, leaned over an official-looking document and circled both names on the sheet of paper.

"I want them both," he said.

The segment immediately cut to Romney, who was staring into the camera with a giant Texas flag hanging behind him. (The presumptive GOP nominee has been campaigning in the Lone Star State this week.)

"Boy, I thought the presidential election was a tough race, but it's nothing compared to the politics at the CMT Music Awards," Romney said.

Offering a solution, he proposed that both Bell and Keith host the show.

"See, I just put two people back to work," he joked. "You're welcome, America."
