Obama Sells Stimulus Plan on YouTube
If 2008 was the first YouTube presidential election, then it looks like Barack Obama's might be the first YouTube administration.
His office and many of his team have taken to YouTube, where they've posted a 6 minute 47 second video that puts the hard-sell on Obama's $800-some billion economic stimulus plan, which he says will save or create 3 million new jobs and which he wants to get going as soon as he takes the oath of office next Tuesday.
The video is a series of talking-head interviews with some of Obama's top team members, including climate czar Carol Browner (EPA chief under Clinton), Health Secretary-designee Tom Daschle (former South Dakota senator and recent wearer of artsy/vaguely European eyeglasses) and Obama's top economic adviser, Larry Summers, and is introduced by Mona Sutphen, Obama's deputy chief of staff.
Watch the video -- which, by the way, appears largely to have been filmed in Washington, here.
