Barack Obama's Yes. We. Can. Transcript

JFK really did a number on any President that followed him with his "Ask not what your country can do for you..." line. But Senator Obama's incredible Yes. We. Can. speech is about the most inspiring piece of writing I've heard. Pure poetry.

Yes. We. Can.

We've been asked to pause for a reality check.
We've been warned against offering the people of this nation false hope.
But in the unlikely story that is America, there has never been anything false about hope.

For when we have faced down impossible odds;
when we've been told that we're not ready,
or that we shouldn't try,
or that we can't,
generations of Americans have responded with a simple creed that sums up the spirit of a people.

Yes we can.

It was a creed written into the founding documents that declared the destiny of a nation.
Yes we can.
It was whispered by slaves and abolitionists as they blazed a trail toward freedom through the darkest of nights.
Yes we can.
It was sung by immigrants as they struck out from distant shores and pioneers who pushed westward against an unforgiving wilderness.
Yes we can.
It was the call of workers who organized; women who reached for the ballot;
a President who chose the moon as our new frontier;
and a King who took us to the mountaintop and pointed the way to the Promised Land.

Yes we can to justice and equality.
Yes we can to opportunity and prosperity.
Yes we can heal this nation.
Yes we can repair this world.
Yes we can.

And so tomorrow,
as we take this campaign South and West;
as we learn that the struggles of the textile worker in Spartanburg
are not so different than the plight of the dishwasher in Las Vegas;
that the hopes of the little girl who goes to a crumbling school in Dillon
are the same as the dreams of the boy who learns on the streets of LA;
we will remember that there is something happening in America;
that we are not as divided as our politics suggests;
that we are one people;
we are one nation;
and together,
we will begin the next great chapter in America's story with three words that will ring from coast to coast;
from sea to shining sea

New Nine Inch Nails Video Cilp.

If this is the official video it is in keeping with Trant Reznors seeming obsession with self destruction. It's like when Brad Pitt ugiled up his teeth to play Tyler Durdin in Fight Club. Great music though.
