Watching Barack Obama’s 30 minute ad before the final game of the 2008 World Series (congrats to the Phillies) I couldn’t help but notice Barack left something out. Throughout the entirety of the advertisement, I never heard Obama mention his opponent. Instead, Obama focused in on real American families facing real American issues and explained how he will solve these problems.
This has always been the quality I have admired most about Obama’s campaign; Obama’s ability to focus on himself and his plans for change instead of trying to cut into his opponent.
Despite all of the attempts to discredit Obama’s vie for the White House it seems like none of them are the kryptonite that can take him down. I look forward to November 5th when Obama can don the mantle of President of the United States and start making the change this country is clamoring (or dare I say Hoping) for.
