Dunno if you have seen it

(Yes We Can)

It's the video that about 17 million people have seen - promoting Barack Obama.

I don't like to share my political views here. (I may at some point - but not now.)

Anyhow, I thought it was a great video, but I felt left out. There were maybe 40 or 50 people featured - but there was no middle-aged white guy, like me! I guess that middle-aged white guys are not targeted by the Obama campaign.

We may not be targeted and, for many reasons, I may not be an Obama supporter, but his message of pulling together and unity is appealing, isn't it?

Jesse Dylan (son of Bob Dylan) directed it... he's a 42 year old white male... if that counts?

I'm not sure if the demographics were intentional as much as this was an independent project by will.i.am... and I don't think there are many middle aged white guy celebrities who are friends with the black-eyed peas... mostly because of musical tastes and circles.

So far, I've had to work 2 Obama rallies and listen to his speech. I just look at politicians like I look at rock stars. They're all just puttin on an act.
