Oui, On Peut!
It's hard to beat this video for a feel-good message of diversity and hope - it's an Obama zydeco music video from the Cajun country of Louisiana. "Oui, on peut" of course means "yes we can."
I also want to point out another very moving video, featuring Maya Soetoro-Ng, Barack Obama's half sister, talking briefly about their mother. She says that their story is "a quintessentially American story." The video is under three minutes but I think it says a lot about the roots of who Obama is.
