Why Not One Country

John Mellencamp provides a powerful track here, singing Woody Guthrie's "This Land Is Your Land," as this latest effort for Obama strives to quell the present atmosphere of angry rhetoric and remind us all that "it's never been more important to be one country."

Produced by Rich Silverstein and Jeff Goodby, the creators of campaigns for got milk?, Hewlett-Packard, and the NBA, this message uses music that's been reassuring to all Americans for nearly a century, through good times and bad.

Our country is all the "real America," from sea to sea. It's one place and in tough times, it's all the more important to remind ourselves of what we share, rather than what divides us.
