So Hillary Clinton’s campaign has reached for a soapbox and megaphone in a desperate attempt to regain momentum to counter the compelling charisma of Barack Obama who is leading the polls. The British broadsheets are all drawing parallels with John Major who pulled his ’92 campaign up with a pair of cosmic sock garters using the same tactic. I think she might need something more substantial to bump Obama off his fast track. All the millions spent on advertising and strategy consultants have not had the desired effect, so it’s back to basics to unite support. Car park rallies addressing the caucus seems Victorian. Hillary should be more impressed by the efforts of the Al Qaida media wing Al Sahab, which announced yesterday via the web a move to make their propaganda available on mobile phones.
Clips of Musab al Zarqawi, the former Al Qaida leader in Iraq who was killed by U.S forces, can now be downloaded thus spreading the word by the new trend of consuming content whilst on the go.
