Obama White House to continue emphasis on “the story” and “hope”

SHARE Obama White House to continue emphasis on “the story” and “hope”

WASHINGTON—One of the organizing keys of the Obama campaign was to get people to buy in to the “movement” through the telling of your own story. A hallmark of each Obama rally was to get some local person on the podium to “testify” to how they came to find Obama.

“The Story” played a role on the Obama campaign website, where people were asked to share their stories. In another sign the Obama White House is going to keep the political “movement” together, the Obama official government web site, www.change.gov is asking folks once again to share “your story” and “hopes” for the Obama White House, calling the project, “An American Moment: Your Story

“Start right now. Tell us your story in your own words about what this campaign and this election mean to you. Share your hopes for an Obama Administration and a government for the people.”
