I admire the way that President-elect Obama's campaign was handled. They made efficient use of the internet to organize their supporters and raise funds. The internet was also utilized to endear him to the voters and make him more accessible. I would say that this strategy is one of the many factors that spelled victory for him.
In the Philippines, the previous senatorial election also made use of the internet (although not as extensively as in the US). We all remember Senator Escudero's accounts in various social networking sites. He won his Senate seat by a landslide.
It's amazing and quite ironic to see that a medium viewed as modernly impersonal and somewhat robotic has made our national leaders more approachable and human. Details about their projects and advocacies have become readily available. With that, I agree with Charm, technology is indeed amazing. :)
