Why Obama is winning--The new internet reality

Noted: Today, on Hillary's and Obama's Youtube channels, we were informed that the last login on Obama's channel was 53 minutes ago, while the last login on Hillary's channel was 1 day ago.


It's not her fault. She grew up in the 50's and 60's. But there it is. Moreover, Obama's youtube channel has had a box where you can donate to his campaign, using google checkout, for weeks now. Hillary's still doesn't have that. Obama is showing us something that was not true for presidential campaigns in 2004, and will be true from now on: a candidate cannot win the presidency without fully engaging on the net.

And that's why Obama is going to win with a landslide in November. Because John McCain is even *more* disengaged from the net than Hillary is. Cause he grew up in the 40's and 50's. There it is. Watch their three web sites. Obama's is *so* clearly more net savvy. And McCain's is *so* clearly ... stilted.
