O For Obama

Barack Obama’s campaign is imaginative.  With the support of Oprah he’s got a strong position in the race for presidency.  Oprah is one of the wealthiest people in the world and she’s influenced millions of people, so what does this mean for Obama?

 

I must admit that I’m SHOCKED that Oprah has endorsed Obama, but I admire her political stance.  She’s careful not to bash other candidates through her support for Obama (yes, I admire this from a PR perspective).  She says, “I have great respect for Hillary Clinton…Because I am for Barack does not mean I am against Hillary or anybody else.” 

 

This is Oprah’s first move in the political arena and that means a lot for Obama.  Obviously she doesn’t jump at the opportunity to substantially support presidential candidates, so Oprah fans can trust her decision, right?  She highlights her personal relationship with Obama and declares that she trusts his mission. 

 

Will the woman who has started the most popular television show in history support Obama all the way to the White House?  It’s very possible considering Oprah’s large audience of people who will shop anywhere she tells them to and even READ any book that makes it on her show.  Everyone knows Oprah is a powerhouse, including herself.  She says of Obama, “I think that my value to him, my support of him, is probably worth more than any check.”

 

On the flip side, I can’t help but wonder what affect this will have on Oprah’s audience.  How many people are ready for her to support a black presidential candidate?  The word on the street is that Oprah caters to a large amount of rich, white Americans.  However, Oprah has a kind of appeal that no one can hate on.  So she’s proved it once again…O can get away with anything!

Barack Obama 2.0…

Dedicated to Amber and Najja, my Final Project group buddies in
MEDIA RELATIONS

Baracka Obama, U.S. Senator from Illinois, is keeping up in the Presidential Election. Whether you think he’s hot, cool or wack, he’s almost on point when it comes to the polls and today’s technological situation. Obama recognizes that technology benefits the world and he pays special attention to developing a stronger technology system and team that would be sure to protect children. Parents and other adults would benefit from the rights of our FIRST AMENDMENT.

 

All i REALLY know about Obama is this: After I logged in to his website, a quick message came up that said I’d be connected to the main page…and in 1-2-3, I was there! (It’s the little things that make me happy, I guess, but he gained a little of my trust.)

 

Obama has really dove into the

WEB 2.0 WORLD

 

 

 

He Even Proposes

PUBLIC MEDIA 2.0

 

Notes and STUFF…

 

 

 

 

OBAMA SAYS: 1) Train more people for high tech jobs. 2) Give citizen rights to immigrants who earn a college degree in the U.S. 3) Use technology to improve universal healthcare. 4) Connect all of America to 21st century broadband.
