This is Barack Obama’s first general election campaign ad in his bid to win the White House. His campaign have wisely focused on his background, suggesting that voters need to become familiar with the man if he’s to stand any chance of winning.
I’ve been following Obama’s campaign over the many months of the primary season and I believe he will be the next president of the US. I’ve no doubt that the Republicans will be slinging mud at him over the coming months and will seek to bring race into it somewhere (again). I’m impressed with this ad though. It’s campaigning to the every man, not strictly about foreign policy issues, but about employment and education.
