The Obama's are taking their presidential campaign and creating a legacy. Has anything like this ever been done before? I don't know, but it sounds like something that can be very powerful. The intent is NOT about a Democratic Party recruiting org, as was said upthread. It is going beyond the boundaries of party.
Barack Obama is already paving the way for his life after he completes his term as president - this will be his legacy. He is a very special person. Dare I SAY (to DMT) Barack Obama is a true patriot!
Really couchmaster? I tried to point out that, in my opinion, a LOT of whites, mostly male, are apopletic that there is an urban, sophisticted, intelligent, BLACK technocrat at the helm right next to his wife who shares the same characteristics. The exact opposite of the stereotypes that have given them so much comfort.
The Republican Party loathes Obama. Did they "loathe" Clinton? The racisim behind Republican intransigence is the elephant in the closet that the media won't touch with a ten foot pole.
