2008: And So It Begins...
While Hawaii's favorite son is vacationing in the islands before he makes his momentous decision about '08, some Aloha Staters are giving him an awfully big hint at what he should do. A grassroots "Draft Obama" campaign in Hawaii is running a TV ad in Honolulu that they hope the Senator will see, thus deciding to launch a run.
"We're hoping that he sees the public groundswell and realizes that we've got his back, and if he jumps into this we're going to work as hard as we possibly can to make sure he's the next president," website founder Ben Stanfield said by telephone from his home in Rockville, Md.
The ad appears to be the same one that the draftobama.org folks ran in New Hampshire and D.C. last week.
