Hey Villager,
This is an AWESOME video! And yes I am registered to vote and have been registered for about 21 years and proud of it!
This video has a plethora of stars, the ones I can name are:
Will-I-Am, Common, Scarlet Johanson, John Legend, Kareem Abdul Jabbar, Kate Walsh, Harold Perrineau, Tatiana Ali, Farnsworth Bently(?), Nolasco, Hill Harper, Nick Cannon, Traci Ellis Ross (I had to watch 2x to make sure it was her that flashed by), Herbie Hancock, Dylan.
That is all that I can name...

Regina - You don't play sista! You named 15 folks with a part of the Yes We Can video. I don't know the total number ... but, I can't beleive you left too many on the table for others to choose (smile)...

Farnsworth Bentley playing the violin?
Yes, that was Traci Ellis

@Regina you have most of the people I recognized, don't forget Nicole Scherzinger and Aisha Tyler.

Villager said...

Ms. Grapevine - I'm just sitting back in amazement at you & Regina! I should offer prizes next time (smile)...

Registered to vote since I was 18 with the Democratic party. I was out today around Columbus Circle here in New York City discussing Obama with other supporters! Further, I am on "foot" patrol spreading his good cheer.

Glad to see musicians and others getting into the game. Many young people are very inspired to be a part of making history with Obama! ;)

Regina takes the cake in naming all the celebrities for I am not to sure if I knew half of them!

Villager said...

Jennifer - Well done! I hope that there is enough motivation and momentum to push Obama over the top on Super Tuesday...

Yes I am a register voter and I vote . Alot of people are register voters but did not vote in the last election maybe Mr. Obama can bring them out to the poles. I think this clip is one beautiful piece of work.

Villager said...

JJ Brock - I guess by this time tomorrow night we will know. I recall feeling hopeful before the polls closed in New Hampshire only to be disappointed. I hope that the same thing won't happen tomorrow night.

Did you see that Hillary started crying again today? I guess she is hoping to get that sympathy vote from women again...

Regina said...

If nothing else Obama may be able to pull a lot of the younger vote and they generally don't because of the old white men who are their choices.
In talking to my 22 year old daughter she says that a lot of younger people on myspace are talking about Obama and how they now have someone to vote for! Wow!
Well we shall see in a few hours...
Peace & Love

sooooo, about that prize...

I watched this video earlier this morning. I will be posting it!

I just love it.

I voted in the SC Primary. Can you guess who I voted for?

Villager said...

Regina - The key is whether or not the young folks go to their polling place and vote. Nothing else will do...

Keala - The video is outstanding. I'm glad you will share it with your blog readers as well. My state (Ohio) doesn't vote until next month. I imagine that we will see alot of Barack and Hillary over the coming weeks...
