Bored With The 2007 RRHOF Ballot?

I always like the Songwriters Hall of Fame nominee list better than the actual inductees. Get a load of the SHOF 2007 Nominees. Divided between performers and non-performers, I think the latter category is always interesting. There are people here who will never get in the RRHOF: Leon Russell, Gordon Lightfoot and David Gates. There's a great Producer/Songwriter who should be in the Country Music Hall of Fame: Billy Sherill. And they nominated Mark James who wrote "Suspicious Minds" for Elvis. And how about Robert Hunter and Led Zeppelin (Queen were inducted years ago). But the name that sticks out that should've been in the SHOF years ago is Merle Haggard. They put in Dolly Parton a few years ago, but the Hag has to be there. And did I mention David Gates?
