President-elect Barack Obama

Obama And The Bloggers

BooMan making sense again:

If Obama listened to the Netroots' advice all the time he wouldn't be president-elect [...] he generally ignored the Netroots' advice and, for the most part, he was wise to do so. He ran a far smarter and more disciplined campaign than I could have ever dreamed up.

The netroots were slow to support the Obama campaign (with a few exceptions), and once he clinched the nomination, the support included a lot of "Obama needs to [insert superlative advice here] or else he's going to lose!" posts. Especially during the week after the RNC.

Remember that week, though? I call it the "Oh noes! We're Gonna Lose!" week. Fortunately, our mantra here was this.
