Top 10 Obama YouTube Videos of 2008


[Posted on behalf of our children’s programs director, and resident Obama fanatic, Ms. Liz Shepherd]


A top-ten list, really? Only one thing happened in 2008, and that was that stupid finally went out of style on November 4 when we elected Barack Obama to be the 44th President of the United States of America.

Yes we did.

But what a journey! It was a nail-biter, a cliffhanger, a grand opera and one very long Google search to get there.
It was a year of hope and change and YouTube. Could any of us have survived without these clips?

1. Barack roll

2. Barack gets that dirt off his shoulders

3. The Great Schlep

4. The one that started it all

5. Stephen Colbert made us laugh

6. Barry Manilow made us cry

7. Coco Tea made us dance

8. Sarah Palin made us wonder why we were ever born

9. But the future was foretold by Stevie Wonder, caught in 2007 on a church shaky cam

10. And it came true. The tide, at last, is turning

A special bonus – my favorite of all really, even though no one ever seems to love it as much as I do!
