Obama, Hillary, McCain campaign flashback

Let’s take a stroll down memory lane at two previous posts on this blog that now seems especially prescient.

On Feb. 15th I drew your attention to the "video wars" between the candidates. Well, now that we know how things are going to come out, I think we can say that these videos pretty much summed up the tone and effectiveness of the campaigns. I recommend you visit them one more time.

First up is this excellent grassroots video for Obama: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jjXyqcx-mYY

Second is this lame video for Clinton: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5FvyGydc8no

And finally is this spoof of the Obama video on McCain: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3gwqEneBKUs

The second flashback came on Feb. 13. I was one of the first journalists to write about the racial strategy of the Clinton campaign. That theme was reinforced by New York Times columnist Frank Rich who pointed to the Clinton campaign’s "creepy racial backstory."

You can still find Rich’s excellent piece at: http://www.nytimes.com/2008/02/10/opinion/10rich.html?_r=1&hp&oref=slogin

It’s worth the time to re-read. I have a feeling the Clinton’s will try to take their campaign into the Democratic National Convention. And if they do, you can bet that the race card will be prominently played.
