LA Times article about the awesome "Yes We Can" Obama video

Well, last night/Super Tuesday settles it (catching up to a brand name candidate, winning more states, raising more $s from small donantions than the rival, ending up with more pledged delegates according to MSNBC - Obama's 838 to Clinton's 834); if things keep going the way they have been going, I am pretty sure that Barack Obama is going to be the next president. A very good thing for the US & the world, most likely.

And some good news on the viral video front for the Obama campaign, from the LA Times:

"The Barack Obama-boosting music video "Yes We Can" hit the Net on Friday and by Super Tuesday it had been streamed a staggering 10 million times on YouTube and the website http://www.yeswecansong.com/.

Produced by multi-platinum-selling rapper-producer will.i.am of the Black Eyed Peas, the elegiac, reggae-tinged composition isn't a campaign commercial, per se. To hear him tell it, the song is an impassioned plea for social change. But the video's viral impact also represents an Information Age breakthrough: a virtual real-time response to the current, super-heated political climate that juxtaposes politics and pop culture in a way that would have been unthinkable just a few years ago."

And here is the inspirational video (if u haven't seen it already):

The Meyerowitz Stories is very good

Note - I saw the movie before the Dustin Hoffman sex assault allegations story broke.  Not sure what kind of an experience I would have had watching the movie had I knew about the allegations.
