Will.i.am's platform

One of the president's most vocal supporters, Will.i.am. of the Black Eyed Peas, doesn't stick to the script when discussing the campaign, gun control and home foreclosure with Deborah Solomon:

--I don’t want to hope anymore. I don’t think we should hope anymore. We hoped enough. Now we have to do. We all have to do now.

--But is gun control the solution?

--I say: 'Let me pay for that house. It’s yours. You don’t got to pay me back.' It’s that simple.Why am I doing it? Because I said, “Yes we can.”
