Obama and Will.i.am: Yes We Can

Chalk up another Internet success for Campaign 2008 as users continue to generate content aimed at moving minds and generating online buzz for Presidential candidates in their bid for the White House.

This time, Will.i.am from Black Eyed Peas fame, created a music video based on Senator Barack Obama’s speech after his loss to Sen. Hillary Clinton in the New Hampshire primary.

The catchy and inspiring song, entitled “Yes We Can” officially lives at Dipdive.com, and features a number of celebrities from sports, stage, music, television and film.

Admittedly, as a true Gen X’er with kids, most of the faces were unfamiliar to me but I’m sure the average high schooler could rattle their names off faster than I could identify “Boots” as Dora the Explorer’s trusty companion.

ABC News’ Senior National Correspondent Jake Tapper, reports on Political Punch:

There’s Scarlett Johansson, Herbie Hancock, Kate “Private Practice” Walsh, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Dartmouth grad Aisha Tyler, John Legend, Adam “CSI: Miami” Rodriquez, Kelly Hu, Amber Valletta (the dead woman from “What Lies Beneath”), Nick Cannon, Tatyani Ali, Eric “Six Feet Under” Balfour, Nicole ScherzingerHarold Perrineau from LOST….

Although I am at odds with Senator Obama’s politics, I am impressed with his ability to communicate his message. As a result, he has effectively positioned himself well as an alternative to Senator Clinton in the Democratic nomination battle come Super Tuesday and beyond.
