Yes We Can Sing

Here's a wonderful music video by of the Black Eyed Peas of a Barack Obama speech. A candidate whose campaign speeches inspire this sort of response is truly an amazing thing.

Here's a recent endorsement from The Nation's Katha Pollitt that echoes my own sentiments about Barack Obama:

But Obama is a candidate in a different mold. He's a natural politician who connects with people as Hillary Clinton, for whatever reason, just doesn't, and appeals to the better angels of their nature. He sparks an enthusiasm in people -- independents, the young, the previously disengaged. An Obama victory could have big positive repercussions for progressive politics.
And one sign of that enthusiasm is simply the passionate art (below) and music (above) that he is inspiring already. And this is just during the primaries. November may be truly amazing.


  1. It sure looks like a lot better way than what we've had for the past 8 years. I like that Obama excites people. That's the part that excites me about him -- even if that excitement sometimes tends towards the treacly end of the spectrum. There's a war to stop after all.
