Obama Launches Social Networking Site


It's not the first time a political candidate will have used social networking as part of a campaign strategy, but it's probably the first time a political candidate has ever created his or her own social networking site.

Enter My Barack Obama, a social networking space dedicated to users who'd like to help Obama get into the White House in '08. He also has a MySpace that's of course not made or endorsed by him but by some very serious fan out there who happens to have little to do but make thousands of friends on his behalf.

There's not too much you can say to trash a guy who acknowledges his own lack of qualifications and admits to doing drugs in college. But we've all seen how internet influence can make or break you. A word of warning, Obama: remember Howard Dean.

Let me see, you want to be President of the United States so you create a My Barack Obama place and a MYSPACE account, neither of which anyone will ever find unless you drive an audience to them. You find that you either hope some place like AdRants picks up on the thing and gives you free publicity or you have to buy regular advertising to drive a bunch of_____ to the things. Who knows what type of creature will show up either site.

Boy do I hate the Presidential political seasons especially when they start early.
