 During Robert F. Kennedy'​s long shot campaign for the presidency in 1968, Senator George McGovern introduced him before a South Dakota stump speech by quoting from "The Impossible Dream"​. Afterwards Kennedy questioned McGovern whether he really thought it was impossible. McGovern replied, "No, I don't think it's impossible. I just... wanted the audience to understand it's worth making the effort, whether you win or lose." Kennedy replied, "Well, that's what I think."​ It was actually Robert Kennedy'​s favorite song. One of Kennedy'​s close friends, Andy Williams, was one of many vocal artists of the Sixties that recorded the song. The song was also a favorite of younger brother Ted Kennedy and was performed by Brian Stokes Mitchell at his memorial service in 2009. During Robert F.

-The song was a favorite of Philippine hero Evelio Javier, the assassinated governor of the province of Antique in the Philippines,​ and the song has become a symbol of his sacrifice for democracy. Javier was shot and killed in the plaza of San Jose, Antique during the counting following the 1986 Snap Elections, an act which contributed to the peaceful overthrow of Ferdinand Marcos by Cory Aquino in the People Power Revolution. Every year, Javier is remembered on Evelio Javier Day and the song is featured. The song's lyrics are written in brass on a monument in the plaza where he was shot.+The song was a favorite of Philippine hero Evelio Javier, the assassinated governor of the province of Antique in the Philippines,​ and the song has become a symbol of his sacrifice for democracy.
