Obama ’08

Unless you’ve been buried under a rock since the 2004 Democratic National Convention, you have known that this day was inevitable. Today, from Springfield, Illinois, Barack Obama will announce his campaign to become the President of the United States. I have not been this excited about a candidate since Bill Clinton in 1992. Obama evokes a feeling of hope and optimism for which I have been desparately searching.

Obama for America launched BarackObama.com earlier this morning, and I am very impressed by the website. There is an excellent section of the site called My.BarackObama.com that allows individuals and groups to meet and discuss the campaign. The 2004 campaign utilized the Internet more than ever before, and the 2008 campaign will be the first to be lost or won on the Internet. Today is the beginning, and I can’t wait to see how it all ends.
