I have changed the profile page for obama_2008 into a one-stop shop for everyone: Obama supporters, election addicts glued to the news, and people who know nothing about him.
Please tell your friends, family, undecided voters, and McCain supporters about this page. I include:
- His policy plans in simple, video form. I call it "Obama's Plans."I will regularly update these videos and links, so please give me your suggestions and feedback.
- His best speeches and appearances. If you have suggestions for more videos to add, please tell me. I only want to include the BEST. I call it "Obama's Greatest Hits."
- Links to his video biography and all his 3 books.
- All voting and voter registration info. Links to all the main pages on Obama's site. All his speeches and YouTube videos. All the Democratic National Convention videos.
- Links and graphics of all the major national polls.
- Links to the best sites and blogs for latest political news.
- Links to all the major fact checking sites.
- Links to all the debates, their fact checks, voter reactions, and Tina Fey parodies.
- Some of the best new speeches and videos by Obama and his campaign. Includes "Keating Economics" video.
To all the Christians out there, you will be especially interested in Obama's eloquent, thoughtful statements on religion and faith. Please watch his fascinating 1-hour Q & A with Pastor Rick Warren at the Saddleback Civil Forum in August 2008. Also, see his beautiful speeches at the Ebenezer Baptist Church (Martin Luther King's former church) in January 2008 and at the Call to Renewal conference in June 2006. I've linked all these videos in "Obama's Greatest Hits."
If anyone wishes to copy the HTML for this page, for your own blog, I have put all the HTML in a text box below.
