So now Barack Obama has used the people’s video to announce his presidential run and get out his own soundbites.
He’s “struck by how hungry we all are for a different kind of politics” and wants to “advance the cause of change and progress that we so desperately need.” It’s the generic change message that Edwards gave in his videos, too. What I’m hungering for already is specifics.
Obama’s charm is made for the small screen: See his appearance on Conan O’Brien. Just one tip: Get a Teleprompter so you’re not always looking to your left.
