    Will.I.Am from the Black Eyed Peas produced a video with several artists, actors, and actresses. Check it out here:http://youtube.com/watch?v=jjXyqcx-mYY

    "It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.

    Yes we can.

    It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom.

    Yes we can.

    It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.

    Yes we can.

    It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballots; a President who chose the moon as our new frontier; and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

    Yes we can to justice and equality.

    Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.

    Yes we can heal this nation.

    Yes we can repair this world.

    Yes we can.

    We know the battle ahead will be long, but always remember that no matter what obstacles stand in our way, nothing can stand in the way of the power of millions of voices calling for change.

    We have been told we cannot do this by a chorus of cynics...they will only grow louder and more dissonant ........... We've been asked to pause for a reality check. We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.

    But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

    Now the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA; we will remember that there is something happening in America; that we are not as divided as our politics suggests; that we are one people; we are one nation; and together, we will begin the next great chapter in the American story with three words that will ring from coast to coast; from sea to shining sea --

    Yes. We. Can."

    I was pretty inspired by this video, maybe you will too, maybe not.

    I don't deny in the least that Obama is an inspirational figure. I just disagree with where he stands on the issues.

    I partly agree with the issue of where he stands on certain serious subjects. However, in my opinion he is the strongest candidate and has really made a good impression on myself. I have also noticed that he has set an impression on a lot of younger people like myself. Honestly, I just would like to keep Clinton out of office by all means.

    Obama is without a doubt the most inspirational candidate. I love his hopeful, optimistic tone. It has a sincerity that nearly all candidates have thus failed to show. I could go into this a little bit more but I am exhausted.

    Good video and great lip synch - but it still won't sway me in the Obama direction.

    this video is still all over the place. i think it has had a real impact on a lot of people. it's probably one of the most influential campaign ads, especially for the younger voters. i do have to say, though, that this one is pretty funny...
