    It's certainly a creative way to get out the info... particularly if you need young voters coming out in droves.

    They've done a lot of things like this... videos done from the campaign director's laptop and sent out in emails to supporters; a website debunking lies...

    very savvy. whether it succeeds depends largely on whether younger//newer voters actually go out on election day.

    Jillian .... I think it is brillant! Goes to show that Obama is "in touch" with younger voters. Much more so than McCain is, which could hurt him bigtime! When the votes are counted in the end.

    My comment about the cell phone being attached to the side of your face is an inside joke I have with my kids, and grandkids. :lol:

    I agree. It used technology brilliantly. There was a follow up email yesterday, too...

    Now... we know that he doesn't have a clue who we are and he's certainly not our buddy... but it's an incredibly clever way to give people a vested interest in the success of the campaign.

    It's part of why dems are so much more enthusiastic about their pick than the repubs are.
