Even if you hate Obama or waht he stands for, you have to admit he runs a good steady well oiled campaign,especially when compare to McCain's.

The Washington Independent » Obama’s Slam Dunk?

Quote:
The campaign’s ground forces, the likes of which this country has never seen, must make sure that the millions they helped register actually get to the polls. They have to continue knocking on doors to ensure that complacency doesn’t set in. Obama’s workers, paid and voluntary, have not traveled all this way to come up short.

As for Obama himself, he must maintain his steady, cool demeanor, which, ironically, was once viewed as a political liability. But now it has come to symbolize the candidate’s sure hand in the middle of the greatest economic crisis since the Great Depression.

“It’s extraordinary,” said Dee Dee Myers, a former Clinton White House press secretary and now a political analyst for CBS. “If you look back, there have been so few incidents where he’s been drawn off message, or resorts to getting involved with the attack of the day. He responds — but he does so in a rational, not emotional, way.

I agree. He's the iPod. McCain is two tin cans and a string.

Sure when he lies and says he will follow Campaign reform but changes his mind when he becomes the nominee so it allows him to get 4 times the money that McCain gets, sure he runs a great campaign.

In fact, the professional way he's conducted his campaign and the deft organization he's put together, which has outmaneuvered Clinton, is impressive. We believe Obama would bring the same professionalism to the executive branch of government since he isn't tied into lobbyists and special interests.

I am impressed with the ethical and professional manner in which he is conducting his election campaign and I look forward to his 8-year administration in the White House re-establishing our country’s credibility around the world.

Nobody stopped McCain from fundraising for his campaign.

That analogy is spot on.

He is buying his presidency. IF he wins, that is.

Obama has changed the way Presidential campaigns will be conducted in the future. I hope he continues to speak to his supporters when he does things that they don't agree with. At least to explain why.
