First let me start by saying I admire the man, the President, Barack Obama, but what I want to also express is my fondness for his 08' campaign. When you can generate support, affinity, and admiration across a multitude of demographics that is special. His campaign strategist, David Axelrod did a fine job on this campaign. To take an Illinois Senator who Americans didn't know at the time and make him a household name is something special. People can sit here and say that President Obama was something Americans hadn't seen before and that naturally gained attention, but his campaign capitalized on that moment. If no one capitalized on that moment in a hard hitting fashion like they did I truly don't believe he would have been President. This campaign had everyone identifying with the word "hope." I salute his entire campaign team for their great work. It was truly remarkable.
