Aaron Neville

Here is another video, but I'd like to dedicate this to Barack Obama and affirm my belief that he will prevail against Hillary. The Pennsylvania Primary is over and I am reading a few different numbers as far as her "win" goes. Between 8 and 10%, which doesn't mean anything in the big picture and Barack has narrowed her touted Superdelegate lead to 26 with the declaration of the Governor of Oklahoma as a Barack committed super delegate. The New York Times in an editorial just as much as diss endorsed her this morning. he has picked up almost 85 super delegates in the last 2 weeks, he leads in the overall delegate count and the popular vote.
Last night was the last primary that Hillary will win. With her bizarre pandering statements about obliterating Iran and the clumsy attempt to spin the damage, it's more apparent that she has become more like John McCain in her attempt to be everything to every one in her shameless performance to get votes.
We've heard her repeat the name of Reverend Jeremiah Wright like a litany in her attempt to play the race fear card over and over again.
To Barack Obama's credit, he has never mentioned that Reverend Jeremiah Wright was the spititual advisor that the Clintons turned to in the aftermath of the Monica Lewinsky scandal.
So here is a great song by a great writer, God On Our Side by Bob Dylan.
The interpretation by Aaron Neville is spine chilling and raises it to another dimension. Aaron Neville is a national monument, a great original American artist as Edith Piaf is to the French.
The arrangement and accompaniment by Daniel Lanois is absolutely spiritual!
Keep On Keepin' On!
