Many said it was impossible. He proved them wrong, bringing an incredible mix of networking, good organization, inspiration and charisma... plus message! Compare his speeches on the stump to Hillary's: his are all on the issues - especially toward the end - and hers are all about ... well, ... her. Oh, and "you". "I love West Virginia!" and "When I grew up in Scranton..." And what's gonna happen to all those bitter, resentful women? What's with that? Personally, I'd like to have a woman do it on her own, without her husband's "brand".
Obama did it amazingly well.
