I'm a California voter for Obama

Monday, January 28, 2008 by Dave Winer.

I've got an Obama poster in the right margin of the home page of Scripting News. It'll stay there for the duration as a virtual equivalent of one of those signs people put on their front lawns. I live in California, one of the Super Tuesday states and I'm an Obama voter. That's what the poster means. Pass it on.  Permalink to this paragraph

After Google indexes Scripting News, this query will have exactly one match. Right now it has none. Let's load up Google with lots of blogs with Californians voting for Obama. And of course every other state in the union. ;-> Permalink to this paragraph

PS: This is where I got the poster. Permalink to this paragraph
