not directly.
But you can (and should) use the content editor web part.
Using jQuery and the SPServices library it would be very easy to create the marquee.

WIth SPServices you can call GetListItems on your desired list passing the view and query fields and process the returned result rows to be used by the marquee.

And a very good marquee:

In case you want it to be a re-usable webpart, create a custom webpart with the code provided by rainer, and with the possibility to pass the list you want to use as a source for the marquee in the web part properties.
