News Obama's 30 minute message of hope and change

So far it looks like Obama is out "Joe"ing McCain.

This looks very real. I suspect that it will be seen as quite effective.

No fair! I have to wait almost three more hours.

Also, it is an inspired political message of hope and change, not an informercial.

It was exactly that.

Sorry I didn't know you couldn't see it yet.

I think it was an outstanding job. Propaganda to be sure but not the ham-handed McCain/Far Right bludgeoning that has characterized their efforts this cycle.

Smooth and real.

This won't hurt him at all. Quite the opposite I should think.

I was impressed.

Wow, just wow. That was awesome. Not an infomercial at all. I was very impressed.

Don't suppose we could get a link to the video? Or is it not up yet?

FoxNews is left sputtering about those "sob-sister" stories and all the money Obama has to get his message out.

Greta Van Susteren is whining about Obama not answering questions that she has? Oy.

Looks like Fox has a case of extreme Campaign Finance Envy.

Because politicians that are expert at propaganda have always turned out well .
At least Leni Riefenstahl did good camera work!

George Washington had Thomas Paine and Sam Adams. He worked out ok.

I think references to Hitler are a little inappropriate and over the top however.

Ok - but everbody is getting a little over the top about this guy, if he turns out not to be able to walk on water people are going to be very dissapointed.

I think he will try - very hard, and that's all we can expect.

We also have a role in this - to work hard and together to build a better nation and a better world - with liberty and justice for all.

Obama is a true $\mu \epsilon \gamma \alpha \lambda o \psi \xi o \sigma$, and if he is elected I will rejoice with all of my heart, and in the unlikely event that he is not elected it will be the darkest day in my lifetime.

I don't think he walks on water, but considering the alternatives it will be a pleasant change to not feel so poorly led as the current 8 year reign of incompetence or the prospect of 4 more from the snarky John McCain.

We have seen real problems go unattended while trillions have been squandered clinging to power and we have been engaging in dubious wars, refighting the Crusades.

Personally I think having an executive that can think his way out of a paper bag will only seem like walking on water. It's my hope that as a Nation, that maybe being exposed to what a real President might feel like that maybe we will develop higher standards than the cream of the Republican Party that has been plated up this year.

Fox keeps comparing it to the Ross Perot spots. Historically Ike did the same thing in 1952.

When the recorded presentation ended in my time zone on CBS, it went directly to a live Obama rally in a packed stadium in Florida. Very impessive.

The Bill Clinton-Barack Obama Rally is truly impressive.
