Obama "Yes We Can" Music Video

In one of the cooler bits of, I don't even know what to call it, art I guess, from the Black Eyed Peas has put together a video combining Obama's "Yes We Can" speech, I think from the night of the New Hampshire primary (although I could be wrong on that -- And as a quick aside, I feel that was his best public speech of the entire campaign, even better the post-Iowa and post-South Carolina speeches), put it to music, added in a bunch of musicians and actors (like Scarlett Johansson and Grey's Anatomy's Kate Walsh) and other Obama supporters (like Hall of Fame basketball star Kareem Abdul Jabbar) speaking and singing along with the Senator. What results is an incredibly inspirational message of hope, exactaly what the Obama campaign is going for, which is probably why the video is now embedded on the campaign homepage. It's really well produced from a technical standpoint, and inspiring from a, well, inspirational standpoint. I almost wish Obama could run it on the air. Buy 4:00 worth of airtime in the Super Tuesday states Monday night and air it. You watch that, and it's so well done, and well produced, you can't help but get inspired by it.
