Can You Dig It?

Barack Obama's candidacy, win or lose, is destined for the history books. He is writing the blueprint for Democrats challenging the powers and principalities of the party machinery.
  • Raise money big & small! The $ 32 million he raised in January is amazing considering the amount of small donors. Not to mention the amount of total donors since the beginning of the campaign, 300,000+.
  • Build a non-traditional coalition: Upscale liberals, Black & Young Voters. This is something Bill Bradley couldn't do in 2000.
  • Play to your strengths: Charisma, Freshness & Relevance. He's so damn charismatic compared the stale politics we've grown accustomed to. He's a fresh face is a roomful of familiar ones. He's hip, relevant and speaks in a language people can relate to, a language that people have been waiting to hear a politician speak in.
  • Make your weakness a strength: He's playing his lack of national political experience like Jimi Hendrix on an electric guitar.
Now with eight Obama-friendly states up next (huge blocs of Black, upscale & young voters), he could begin to build up the momentum he needs for the upcoming showdowns in Ohio, Texas & Pennsylvania.

Can you dig it?
