Songs: Yes We Can & We Are the Ones

If you haven't watched these yet, watch 'em.  They are videos using soundbites from Obama speeches, by will.i.am (from the Black Eyed Peas). 

I think the 2nd one is my favorite, musically speaking.   If you only have time to watch one of them, I say watch "We Are the Ones"... 

What do you think?

Yes We Can

Plus after the song is over, wait for a bit... there are statements by the people in the video speaking about Obama and this election in their own words...

We Are the Ones

(we are the ones we've been waiting for)
There's bonus footage after this video too.

Rolling Stone on McCain's angry and volatile temperament

I think we need a level-headed, not a hot-headed, President... But, hey, maybe that's just me.


How McCain treats his wife (from Rolling Stone article, pg 8)
During his 1992 campaign, at the end of a long day, McCain's wife, Cindy, mussed his receding hair and needled him playfully that he was "getting a little thin up there." McCain reportedly blew his top, cutting his wife down with the kind of language that had gotten him hauled into court as a high schooler: "At least I don't plaster on the makeup like a trollop, you cunt."



According to McCain's GOP colleagues (also from Rolling Stone article, pg 8)
At least three of McCain's GOP colleagues have gone on record to say that they consider him temperamentally unsuited to be commander in chief.

Sen. Thad Cochran of Mississippi weighed in that "the thought of his being president sends a cold chill down my spine. He is erratic. He is hotheaded."
