YouTube’s Top Election Video Is Iraq War Vet’s McCain Endorsement
If the election came down to YouTube viewers, a pro-John McCain video would be the winner.
A video of an Iraq veteran giving his endorsement to McCain is the site’s most watched election video, with 11 million views, according to the BBC, which calls it “short, simple and powerful.”
The video opens with a young man with close-cropped hair standing outside in casual clothes next to an American flag.
“Dear Mr. Obama,” he says, and describes himself as an Iraq war veteran, whose yearlong tour convinced him that Iraqis are “just like us” in seeking freedom.
“Are they better off today than they were in 2002? You bet,” he says.
