There’s no question that between viral hits such as “Yes We Can” and his dramatic speech on race, YouTube helped President-elect Barack Obama win this election. But just because the campaign’s over doesn’t mean Obama is ditching his online video success.
Obama delivered the weekly national Democratic address via YouTube this week, marking the first time the address has been released as web video. According to Change.gov, Obama will deliver these weekly web video updates (they’re also on the radio) throughout the transition and will continue once he is president.
As of this morning, the video has been watched more than half a million times.
