Barack Obama Excites via YouTube


Taking another step towards the Dream, U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-Illinois) filed papers this week to form a presidential exploratory committee.

Proclaiming that "Politics has become so bitter and partisan, so gummed up by money and influence, that we can't tackle the big problems that demand solutions. And that's what we have to change first."

In a sign of the times, Senator's Obama's message was delivered via a YouTube video. Click A Message From Obama to hear and see the senator deliver him much anticipated message.

Actually, his use of YouTube is an indication that Senator Obama's campaign is prepared to be creative in the way they reach voters and communicate his campaign's message. The Senator's youth and command of the written and spoken word gives him a tactical as well as strategic advantaged over his older and less dextrous opponents.

I love this part of his message: "It's not the magnitude of our problems that concern me the most; it's the smallness of our politics." Here! Here!

Go, Obama, Go!
