Re: What is your favorite positive video featuring

I get choked up every time I watch this. I have it linked in my Barack Obama bookmarks folder and every time I'm feeling down about this crazy primary season I watch it!

Very inspiring!

Iowa!

My all-time favourite Obama video was an early one:

Re: Iowa!

I hadn't seen that one, Shaun. And, I have to say it's awesome--much better than anything I have to offer, actually.

But, that doesn't mean I won't share my own favorite oldie-but-goodie--"Obama Baby":

Re: Iowa!

That was terrific, hadn't seen that one before.  Talk about the youth vote, eh?  I loved that line about politicians and diapers, 'when they're full of sh*t, change 'em'.

Re: What is your favorite positive video featuring

God, you got to feel sorry for HRC, all those millions of early money, "brilliant" pollsters and she has no videos like this.

I think I know Obama's magic,  its the fact then when he speaks, it sounds like he's speaking to you.

Now hear and watch him and aren't moved, I doubt you ever will be.

And after my hunger induced over-drama, let me show MY favorite.

Im not even trying to be funny with this one!  As the son of imigrants I love how this video is an endorcement via culture unique to Mexico.   God I love this video......

Viva Obama!

I liked that one a lot too, in case anyone's interested here's the English translation:


To the candidate who is Barack Obama
I sing this corrido with all my soul
He was born humble without pretension
He began in the streets of Chicago
Working to achieve a vision
To protect the working people
And bring us all together in this great nation
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
Families united and safe and even with a health care plan
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
A candidate fighting for our nation
It doesn't matter if you're from San Antonio
It doesn't matter if you're from Corpus Christi
From Dallas, from the Valley, from Houston or from El Paso
What matters is that we vote for Obama
Because his struggle is also our struggle, and today we urgently need a change
Let's unite with our great friend
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
Families united and safe and even with a health care plan
Viva Obama! Viva Obama!
A candidate fighting for our nation

Thanks for the translation

I am not that great with Spanish and I had a hard time following it.

Non-existant.

nt.

Re: Non-existant.

Me too.  Besides 'thanks' and 'how much?'  Apparently there is some controversy over the lyrics to that one, something to do with spiritual versus salacious love but it is a honk nonetheless.

Re: Viva Obama!

Thanks for the lyrics,  been waiting MONTHS for that.

I didn't need to now what it said, but I must say it was alot more substantive then I assumed.

I love the romantic languages like spanish and greek (which I speak).  There is so much more detail when translated

Re: Viva Obama!

Man, I wish I could speak Greek.  The great living language.  Glad you enjoyed the lyrics, I thought the video was moving in a classical, romantic way too.

I am HR'ing you

as this is negative.  I said positive and everything posted was positive.

by Student Guy 2008-04-21 04:48PM | 0 recs
Um did you look at the title?

This was supposed to be a positive diary.  Look at all of the other videos and they are positive.  The choice of the person I hr'ed wasn't of their candidate and wasn't positive.

Re: Um did you look at the title?

I agree.  I think Student Guy asking to keep this positive is reasonable and actually a welcome change from the overwhelming negative stuff over the last few days.

Time and place.  And this was neither for that particular video.

Re: Um did you look at the title?

I don't know whether this qualifies but I can't resist a plug for my favourite mental health relief team throughout this election cycle, Red State Update, it's not exactly what it sounds like it is.  This one of their (several) actual submission to the original Democratic CNN/YouTube debate request for half-minute questions for the candidates last year and remains, in my mind, a classic of the genre:

Needless to say it wasn't selected by CNN though they did get the Gore question, if you remember.

Re: Um did you look at the title?

Oh my god this is hilarious.

Thanks for the laugh!

Re: What is your favorite positive video featuring

A nice uplifting diary and you have to pollute it with negativity.

Troll rated you for being contrary.

Re: What is your favorite positive video featuring

I like this one of Hillary.  

I hope this works!  I've never embedded a video before.

Re: What is your favorite positive video featuring

Works beautifully.  Thanks for helping to balance out the Obama videos here, and I really like that one.  It is better than the Buffet interview.

I really like this one for Hillary, too.

A very nice bio of her life thus far.

Let's not forget Chelsea!  Beautiful smile.  Just like her mom.  Hillary and Bill must be so proud.

Re: What is your favorite positive video featuring

Finally, I hope you don't troll rate me for throwing up a negative one!

Nope

McCain isn't a democrat.  Therefore he doesn't deserve the anti-negative protection given to democrats.

Get ready to dance...

One of my favs, especially as a lover of funk, guitar, and nice vocals.  Oh, and BHO!

McCain goes after the youtube crowd

Are Republicans trying to be hip?  Will this attract the youth vote?

Re: McCain goes after the youtube crowd

This is a joke, right?  Did McCain supporters actually put this out?

Ouch.

Re: McCain goes after the youtube crowd

236.com  did it!  

They had us fooled for a good week!

Including McCain.

The funny thing is, Republicans couldn't even make a video better than one meant to parodize them.

The RNC should be worried, because although alot of people said "This must be fake" gave the RNC demographic the benefit of doubt and assumed it was real.
Thats real sad.  

I was actually disspointed to find out it was a joke.
