Oops. My bad.

Good video, regardless of the source.

My son sent that to me last week. That is amazing. What a way to get out the vote, with a fraction of the regular cost. Of course I'm no Obama fan, but I did fill out the bottom e-mail addresses and sent it along to my buds for a good laugh. The extrapolation could be enormous, driven by personal e-mails. Someone had their thinking cap on when they came up with this one.

Isn't it simpler to copy and paste the URL into a group Email of your own?

I don't think you can have them personalized if you do it that way. Although, remember I'm a Republican, and like John McCain, not as computer savvy as you. :mrgreen:

Correct. Part of the beauty of this viral marketing is having the message so personalized to the recipient. I am sure you HAD to see the video when you saw the email, and what good is a message if nobody views it?

I had this sent to me a few days ago, but since I voted yesterday I know from now on that it won't be my fault.

As in past years, I wrote in Gus Hall for President, then "none of the above" for all other elective offices. It is great to be part of the process.
