‘Fireside Chats’ Updated: Obama on YouTube

More evidence of the new era that we’re in: President-elect Obama has begun to do direct-to-voter YouTube broadcasts, which have been likened to an updated version of FDR’s depression-era radio addresses. 

It makes complete sense and gives Obama direct reach into the hearts and minds of voters in ways that other forms of mass communication cannot.

    I’m 35 years old, and this is the first time in my life I’ve felt like my country’s government wanted to engage me. And Obama isn’t even president, yet. Amazing. Thanks, Greg!
