Ralph Nader and Patti Smith have teamed up to make a music video in support of Ralph Nader’s presidential bid “ Awake from your slumber”, available on youtube and a growing number of sites. The posting notes on youtube suggest that the video was posted by the Ralph Nader team.
This seems increasingly to be an integral part of U.S. politics, no doubt in part because of the phenomenal success of will-i.am’s Barack Obama video “Yes we can” which has been downloaded over 6 million times and links the Obama campaign with a who’s who of cultural literati.
What can I say? I am a long time Patti Smith fan … and Ralph Nader fan (as a Canadian I do not have to make the sticky decision about voting or not voting for Mr. Nader). Check it out.
