Presidential Campaign: 2.0

Presidential Campaign: 2.0

Who will Barack Obama pick to run as his Vice President? Your next text message could hold the answer. The Democratic presidential candidate has set up a system that allows voters to receive an email or text message “the moment” Obama makes his decision, by signing up at my.barackobama.com/VP or texting VP to 62262.

His campaign has already utilized technology more than any other, using the internet to gain volunteers and raising almost $340 million online. Obama’s campaign manager, David Plouffe, encourages voters to be “part of the moment” and said, “No other campaign has done this before.”

In response, some are saying that this particular use of technology is “turning the VP selection process into an ‘American Idol’ moment.”

Is Obama just using what we use everyday to his campaign’s advantage or do you think the text message announcement is going to hurt his image? Did you sign up to find out who will be his VP? If not, have you used any other technology, like the candidate's Facebook pages, to be involved in either of the presidential campaigns? [Associated Press]
