"Yes, We Can"–The video for Barack Obama

Of course, we can talk about change til we’re blue in the face, but tomorrow’s the day–Super Tuesday–when 22 or so states will have their primary voting.  So, it’s vitally important that those of us who can actually do go to the polls and pull a lever. For me, it comes down to this: We’re faced with a choice between the past and the future, between supporting our fears or our hopes, between sticking with an older, somewhat out of touch generation that’s reluctant to cede power and a younger one that can inspire us to achieve the promise of the future.

Speaking of inspiration, if you’re in need of any, check out the video that was orchestrated by Black Eyed Pea Will.i.am.  It features a lot of actors and musicians who have been touched and inspired by Barack’s message.  You can also head over to MoveOn.org and participate in their Endorse-A-Thon, which aims to spread the word about Barack and reach beyond their core group of left-liberal members.
