Yes We Can – Obama Music Video

Blogger (and Hillary supporter) Jeff Jarvis dismisses this little ditty –and Obama’s campaign– as "the most rhetorical of the bunch: speeches and slogans so neat they can fit in 4/4 time."

What was the title of the "song" (early 70s?) that incorporated bits of speeches by MLK, JFK and Bobby Kennedy? Was it Abraham, Martin and John? Seems like there was another one but I can’t come up with it.

UPDATE: But smays.com reader Dale could. In 1971, DJ Tom Clay combined Jackie DeShannon’s What the World Needs Now with Dion’s Abraham, Marltin and John, and the speeches referenced above. Clay died in 1995 at the age of 66.
