WOW thats cool

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.

interesting read for those of you who want health insurance and want everyone else to have it too…

I agree… A Mishmash… yuck

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

Go Obama!!

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!

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

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!

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.

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

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!

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.

puke

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

Kate Walsh and Scarlett look awesome in the vid

OBAMA 08!
YES WE CAN!

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.

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
