Here's a wonderful music video by will.i.am 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.
