Campaign Video of the Day -- February 18, 2008

Today's video, Austin Precinct Captain Training 02/16/08, is very informative. Barack Obama's campaign is so committed to the political ground game that they are willing to fly Newark, New Jersey, Mayor Cory Booker to Austin, TX to help train precinct captains. I wonder if there were similar trainings in other large Texas cities over the weekend. If you know, please leave a comment.

The film also hints at why people become so excited when they think about Barack Obama's campaign. Americans are sick of going to the mall while bickering and divisive Washington politicians scare and "take care" of them. They want to come together to build a brighter future for all Americans, not just some 50% + 1 collection of special interests. If that sounds cult like, I guess America has been taken over by a cult numbering in the millions.

If you encounter a campaign video in need of broader play, please email the link to subject Campaign Video of th Day.
