Any good caulk will work. I buy DAP painters caulk by the case. It cures
quickly and is paintable in about 30 minutes.

Make sure the caulk says it's paintable and is designed for outdoor use,
preferably on siding.

I'd have to disagree with this one. While latex caulks are user
friendly, they will not remain flexible nearly as long as a good
urethane caulk. I'd use OSI quad. (http://www.osiproseries.com/
Category.aspx?CategoryID=Window-Siding-Sealants). Superior adhesion,
superior flexibility when compared to latex.

I used Hardie color-matched caulk on mine. I'm pretty sure it was a
tri-polymer type caulk. You also might want to consider using pre-painted
hardie-plank. The time saved is well worth it.

But isn't "painters caulk" typically the cheapest lowest quality caulk
you can buy?
