Barack Obama "Yes We Can"

Songwriter of the Black Eyed Peas knows good lyrics when he finds them, including the concession speech of Senator Barack Obama after the New Hampshire primary (Obama's speech itself borrows heavily from labor history (Yes, We Can is an English translation of the United Farm Workers' Si Se Puede))

Stunningly elegant music video by Jesse Dylan.
