The Obama Campaign in One Video

I’m fighting back tears watching this video of an Obama campaign named Charles from Boulder, Colorado.

This video is a distillation of the entire Obama message — change, hope, bringing people together. But that’s not what makes it powerful. What makes it powerful is that unlike a campaign ad or debate soundbite, this is true, demonstrably true. Attaturk is right:

I’ve yet to see a McCain ad that emits on one-hundredth of the emotional pull of this simple video, and contrary to what the McCain Campaign and rightwing pundits claim, McCain’s emotional ads are always about why he deserves to be President, never why we will have a better country when he is President.

McCain’s ads can’t do this, cannot be this emotionally powerful because they just wouldn’t be true.
