Obama the Brianiac

A post from Andrew Keen on 11/25 talks about the difference in “branding” the Obama campaign versus the Obama administration.  I think that the Big O’s people have shown they know PR well enough to sell Obama 2.0 to everyone who ate up the first version…

Of course, I thought of what the criticism from the right will be when they look at an administration that reeks of exceptional acheivement– they’ll say it’s “elitist” and it’s not “average America.”  And my response would be, “exactly.”

It doesn’t make sense to have to apologize for putting the best minds in the nation in the positions of greatest influence.  Shouldn’t we WANT to be led by our highest acheivers, our most recognized experts, our BEST and our BRIGHTEST?
