Recently, the sultry Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson expressed her support for the next candidate for the presidential election, Barack Obama. It is reported that she also gave a lecture in front of public in favor of Barack. This speech was indeed strategically timed, just prior to the vital conference scheduled to be held on 2nd January 2008 at Coralville, Iowa.
Reportedly, Scarlett was the center of attraction and guest of honor at the huge rally Barack conducted on the night of 2nd January. Her role in the campaign was a far cry from her usual acting histrionics. Her objective of being in the rally was merely political, that is to assemble and meet young voters.
Obama had always been supported by renowned celebrity talk-show host Oprah Winfrey. His election campaign now seems to target the new generation youngsters and persuade them for casting vote in his favor.
Obama’s camp has teenage members from high schools. His campaign is the first one ever to introduce a formal Facebook request form that can be utilized to arrange and collect data about people, who have the prospect of forming committees or groups. On January 3rd, Obama’s camp announced the official launch of its Facebook Primary in collaboration with the organizations named MoveOn.org, the Hip Hop Caucus and the League of Young Voters.
The unique notion behind creation of this Facebook application is that people can cast their votes and convey their support for their preferred candidate through it. They can also promote the candidate and state the socio-economic or political concerns that they want to get resolved.
Another additional feature of this contemporary Facebook is that, people can be aware of the up-to-date records informing which candidate is getting the maximum votes both nationally as well as in each network of the Facebook. By roping in the popular Hollywood star Scarlett Johansson, it is expected that Obama’s camp will get more publicity and followers.
