Barack Obama has gone from being an obscure US senator to being a front runner in the presidential race seemingly overnight. His official campaign website at www.barackobama.com is the best way to keep up with official campaign announcements.His site features a TV section with an array of video clips to view, which may be helpful for those with limited access to US television media. There is an issues section in which he lists his positions on a few issues. The site allows supporters to join, put up a profile and a blog, and network with others. One may also sign up for campaign emails--- which can be useful also to non-supporters of Mr. Obama who are busy blogging about the campaign and about their own preferred candidate.There is a 'newsroom' section which relays official campaign press releases and shows favorable mentions of Obama from the nation's media. For other news on the campaign one would also have to regularly search Google news or some other source.A campaign staff blog adds a modern tone to the website, though there is no blog by the candidate himself. One may also search the supporter blogs which the web site allows for members of the blog.The most important section, however, is the 'donate' section which is provided with a link in the form of a big red button. The suggested donation amounts range from $2300 down to $10. This is a high tech and well produced web site. Other campaigns, such as that of Senator Sam Brownback, would do well to study this web site to improve their own.
