    Very moving and inspiring. Yes we can…

  • CG

    WOW thats cool

  • Peppo

    I love Obama and am inspired by him…when he speaks, you really feel the conviction behind his words, as opposed to the others. That said, the video was an unlistenable mess, a mishmash of words.

  • isabella

    I agree… A Mishmash… yuck

  • happy

    Obama is so inspiring. He would make an awesome President!

    Go Obama!!

  • OMG

    OMG,what is wrong with Scarlett Johansson.Does she feel sick?I mean in the video she looks like a shy girl who will puke all over the camera in a few seconds.And where was her great voice?She is so fucked up!

  • mina

    so creative…i loved it! i’m not sure who i’m voting for yet but i thought this was pretty cool.

  • inspiring

    Truthfully, I’m not an Obama supporter though we share similar beliefs, roots, the same home state of Hawai’i, and are both Punahou alums. But I definitely appreciate his conviction and Will.I.Am’s artistic take on Senator Obama’s speech. What a very inspired project with an even more inspiring message.

    Yes, we can…so VOTE!

  • tia

    if Hilary gets the nomination McCain will win in November, if Obama gets the nomination Obama will win in November, the republicans will come at her with all the scandals that she was involved in during the 90′s, things we know about and probably some we don’t, the only thing they can use against him is his lack of experience so if you want a democratic back in the White House Obama is the way to go in my humble opinion

  • :/

    Aw, guys don’t fall for it.

  • Fleur de Lee

    I actually saw a video for another new song for Obama earlier today on youtube that I found very inspiring. Not celebrity endorsed but full of passion, heart & soul. If you are an Obama fan and want to check it out, here’s the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RWE_sWRwLtc

  • junifer

    The girl singing in 1:11 and throughout the video is the hugely talented Canadian Esthero!!! She’s collaborated with Will I Am before; she sang in the Black Eyed Peas’s song Weekend, before that hag Fergie joined the group.
    Also that is Taryn Manning in the hat at 1:40, she is not only a great actress but a terrific singer!
    Great video!

  • doesitmatter

    not being american, but having been inundated with your presidential campaigns current and throughout history- i find this to be incredibly inspiring and really hope either obama or hilary are elected- either way it would be a huge step forward that the entire world could embrace.

  • Original Amber

    puke

  • ZZZZ

    GO OBAMA!! Great vid. Glad you picked it up Jared :)

    Kate Walsh and Scarlett look awesome in the vid

    OBAMA 08!
    YES WE CAN!

  • louise

    I so admire Kate Walsh for using her free-time during this strike to visit Unis & speak for Obama. Nice to see a star actually stand up for what they believe in, instead of just writing a cheque.

  • kate

    how hard was it to write this song all they did was sing what he said and repeat yes we can. what a dumb ass song and video using stars to try to get stard to make people vote one way or another. people should vote on topics not on stars. LAME

    Nice video, good idea to get the youngsters involved

  • tony

    Peace and love

  • yeah

    i hate the way they’re trying to make this an ‘i have a dream’ iconic speech. i think obama should be president but if they want to parallel him to martin luther king they shouldn’t cuz martin ended up shot.

    btw, hilary won’t win. you still have people in the world who would rather die than listen to a woman… & being the president’s wife doesn’t give you white house experience.

  • justme

    Go Obama!!!!

  • hAMITAF LA BOOKAY

    I VOTE OBAMA!!!!!

  • lovey

    Amber Valetta is in it with her son….

  • IRINA

    At 1:01 it’s actress Aisha Tyler from “Ghost whisperer” and “Friends”

  • Mima

    Great video. I saw Amaury Nolasco from Prison Break for a second… 3:25 I think.

  • Rae

    This is a cool video but it doesn’t matter how many celebrities line up behind him I’m still not changing my vote. I’m tired of all these celebrities and big political names telling my to take a second look, vote for Obama.

  • 808

    AMAZING VIDEO AND MAGNIFICENT MESSAGE…YES WE CAN!!!

  • sillyme

    Great video, but I’m still not voting for Obama. I don’t know why, but whenever “Hollywood” picks their candidate, I tend to vote for the other person. People are treating Obama like he’s Jesus or something.

    And, I agree with the person above who said that Hillary won’t win. But, Obama won’t win the general election, either. Just like there are blacks who said they wouldn’t vote for Hillary if she won, there are lots of people who will not vote for a black man, no matter what – and many of these people are even Democrats!. Fact is, neither of them will win the general. Obama is just too liberal, and the country, for the most part, is moderate.

  • may

    I think I saw Carlos Bernard (Tony Almeida on 24)

  • may

    and Ed Kowalczyk is there too

  • fromaustralia

    can someone please tell me who the singer is with the short hair with fringe
    the one who pumps up her bicep and her tattoo at the end of the video?

    i love her voice!

  • lovely

    Amaury Nolesco from prison break =) !!! at 3:24 !

  • CHANAW

    COME ON !!!!

    MAKE BARACK OBAMA PRESIDENT

    HE IS THE CHANGE

    HE IS THE FUTUR

  • ºO.oMaddieo.Oº

    Go Obama

  • Imko

    Tyra Manning (8 Mile) is also in the video

  • dyta

    as a non-American, I’ll say this “ad” is better than Clinton’s tearful speech.

  • MovieMadness08′

    If you don’t like it, then that is fine, but don’t insult it just b/c you have different beliefs or like another canididate. Very nice…

  • lily

    Wow! that was really REALLY lame! GO HILLARY!!!

    GO HILLARY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • MovieMadness08′

    Oh I read some of your posts and I think some of you have a childish mentality i.e the person who said they vote the opposite of celebrities just cause. And the person who posted that link about health insurance, its just that, an opinion(says so at the top of the page, although I did read it). I for one don’t know who I’m voting for, except that it will be Hilary or Obama.

  • Nora

    Vote for OBAMA!!!!

  • sally

    Are you fools so far removed from 9/11 that you are ready to vote for a president with muslim roots???? Even if there is only a .01% chance that he is still involved with them, that is a chance I am not willing to take. I could get up and yell change too…I’m a republican but am voting for hilliary today to be sure Barack Hussain Obama doesn’t get in. (although I’m sure that will come back to bite me when hillary chooses him as her running mate)

  • wow

    that was the stupidest bullshit I’ve ever seen

  • alyx

    YES WE CAN ♥ ( i hope i could be americain for voting for him ). OMG this video clip is great.

    YES WE CAN

  • KATE WALSH FAN

    Whos the guy next to Will.i.am at 2:55????????
