Obama and the Internet

Today, finally, Barack Obama will become the 44th US President and the worlds first President or head of government to come to power through the Internet. Were it not for Obama's innovative and wildly successful approach to grass roots support from the Web up extended by text based communications and online fund raising - he would not be being sworn in today.

And given his Web site's popularity, were it a commercial entity, it would be worth hundreds of millions of dollars. So how much will he get paid as President? I guess, not enough...

Lets all just pray he can be as innovative with Washington as he has been getting into power. Good luck to ya! And who said the Internet does not change everything. Bah.
