Obama supporters FTW

This is a great bit of inspirational propaganda. Some of the commenters criticize it for lacking any substance, but I think that there’s a difference between policy and the more ephemeral mood that is brought to a regime. The rhetoric of the recent administration was one of fear, divisiveness, and unquestioning acceptance. This rhetoric is inclusive, inspirational, and filled with love and hope. A four minute music video (or party speech for that matter) is not a good venue for establishing or explaining policy. It is an excellent venue for establishing the ideological trajectory of an administration. I think it would be a great relief to have a regime dedicated to positivity (Yes), inclusiveness (We), and activism (Can).

I prefer Hope to Fear.
