iObama! iPhone Campaign Sighting

Obama using his iPhone on the campaign trail

Either sister site jumped the gun in endorsing Barack Obama based on his favorite gadget being a "Blackberry", or the Senator once again proved himself the young, hip, agent of change in ditching last year's Waterloo for some Cupertino chic in the form of the iPhone.

Whether a gift from Oprah, or from El Jobso himself in lieu of campaign donations, this video (after the ad, 1:10 in -- kinda) clearly shows Obama pulling out his elegantly styled iPhone, effortlessly navigating its unmatched user interface, and easily receiving the information he needed.

We all know Karl Rove got the iPhone into the Oval, but could Obama's be the first one in the Big Chair itself? Trick question, if elected we all know he'll be rocking an iPhone 3G...

[Confession: This post is 100% politics free by virtue of being written by a Canadian in Canada who finds the US election process far too binary and direct to be understandable.]

Smart. No other phone is going to resonate with voters. Certainly it's not going to influence a large number, but it contributes to the overall image that this guy "gets it" and/or has "cool" "stylish" characteristics. His phone use has to be very minimal so why not go with one that positively affects the one thing in life that you're doing right now (not that I think he wouldn't want to use the iPhone anyway).

Looky here says:

One could argue the same as the iPhone critics: Obama, like his iPhone, is all style and no substance. Fortunately, at least the iPhone is expecting an upgrade ;)

Matt Muelver says:

Quick! ---> Someone give W an iPhone so we can put this silliness behind us and get on with some real iPhone news.

Rene Ritchie says:

It's hard not to believe every move isn't calculated. Quick, pull out an iPhone and get more votes from the cool kids?
And hey, my 2-year old godson can use an iPhone, so why not W? :)
(Again, as a Canadian, where we have 3+ parties, and librals are left nationally but right of socialist in my province, so the American partisanships are nigh impenetrable to me -- we just figure all of them get corrupt if they stay in power too long...)

Superb!!! I love opensource this one
