One thing is for sure. The Barack Obama campaign has perfected the art of building up the entire nation in a waiting game for the news of who the V.P. selection will be. There isn’t a work place in the nation, grocery store line, or a street corner where the talk is not about the V.P. for the Democratic ticket. It has been masterful in its design, and the fact no leaks have occurred which would ruin the timing shows what a competent and highly professional team is at work for Obama.
Why do I think there will be less national excitement over the selection of John McCain’s V.P. selection? There is no way for McCain to compete with the national drama that Obama can create.
For now the Blackberrys in the nation are being watched with a desire to know who the nominee will be. The Obama team told supporters that we would be the first to know with text messages and emails. It is unprecedented to have a text message of this type used by a campaign to release such important information. But it is a sign of who will make the difference in the polling on Election Day. There are lots of people that make up the grassroots ground game that are not being counted in polls. There is a huge segment at work in many states, flying below the radar, and McCain has no idea how powerful the vote against him is going to be. The grassroots workers will get their text message and email today. And then for the next 74 days work their tails off to elect a new President.
But for now we just must wait.
