The General Election Season Begins...

Well kiddies, all those McCain vs Obama or McCain vs Hillary or Hillary vs Obama polls will be relegated to the Google Archives within the next 48 Hours and the General Election Season will be upon us.

I said a year ago this would be played out in the media as every candidate has Terabytes of video just waiting to be harvested and collected. Investment money needs to go to both the traditional media and the new kids on the block like google and youtube [gootube] and the other aggregates.

Let the games begin.

YouTube - McCain's YouTube Problem Just Became a Nightmare

By the way, I think McCain might just be taking a page from Hillary's very successful Bosnian sniper escapade.

Six and a half hours and no defense of McCain for his treatment by the mean ol Drive By Media? WOW!

Mr Rove would be very disappointed.

Some folks need to order new talking point cards...STAT!!!

Youtube banned the video.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.

-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address

Just in case, this link should work fine. It is a bit of a Swiftboater but it had the link.
