Yes We Can!

All that can be done is done. Everybody knows the message of Mr. Barack Obama and it is out of our hands. Now, it is time for the people to make the change. Yes we can!

Whether he wins or not, his message is clear. And when I'm 30, 40, 50, 60 and even 70 and 80, I will always remember his message and the promise he gave to America. It's one of love, unity and hope. Barack Obama is not just a man. He's not just a politician and I know many people would dispute that, but you simply can't. How can you dispute an emotion? How can you argue with inspiration? He is symbol for what we as people can be and achieve. He's an icon for why America is great. He has restored my faith in so many aspects of being a human and an American that had been so dim for all of my political life.

Barack Obama has changed my innner political dialogue. He has changed it from one of frustration and anger to one of hope, unity and courage and no matter who you support in this election, that fact is undisputable. In my opinion, every American owes Obama something. He changed the face of this election. He changed how every candidate talks about the future. Yet, he is the only one who will make it happen and help all of us realize that his dream is our dream and that that dream is the dream of all people all over the world. It's hope...

As you know, I have been researching past campaign videos, but this one is always going to stay with me.

Yes We Can was released on February 2nd. It's a song using the words from Obama New Hampshire Primary speech. h it twice, three times or more, but you can feel America changing when you watch and hear his voice.

Yes We Can! Yes We Can!

"Right on", to use an "old" slogan from the late 60s! I think you feel about Obama the way a lot of us back then felt about Bobby Kennedy and Eugene McCarthy.
