Quit While You Are Behind

I cannot say that I support any Presidential candidate. I haven’t been following more than I have to for this class, but I must say that McCain doesn’t look so good. According to Techrepublican.com, McCain isn’t giving up on the youth vote. His team went on to say

“it will focus on his legacy as a war hero, plus appearances on late night television shows — including Saturday Night Live — and town hall meetings around the country.”

Who is he trying to persuade? Obviously not me! I haven’t watched Saturday Night Live since shortly after Eddie Murphy left and I haven’t attended a town hall meeting in ages. I think McCain is totally missing the mark.

Youth Live on the Internet!

This is how we interact with friends and family. We congregate online and form opinions from news we gather for ourselves. Whether he chooses to engage or not, we are having various conversations online and they are probably not in his favor. We need a President who can adapt to change and who is a fast learner. Heaven forbid having to explain to McCain that 8-track is no longer the musical media of choice.

According to Pew Internet and American Life Project, 46% of Americans have used the Internet, email or cell phone text messaging to get news about the campaign, share their views and mobilize others. Furthermore, two-thirds of Internet users under the age of 30 have a social networking profile, and half of these use social networking sites to get or share information about politics or the campaigns.

Still think you can rely on Saturday Night Live and your illustrious war career? Get wired McCain!
