Well-Played, Barack Obama

Team Obama will be posting youtube videos of experts talking about the economic crisis and what Obama’s economic stimulus plan will do to combat the recession.

According to the NY Times:

His aides said they would begin sending to supporters and posting on YouTube videotapes of economic experts in the administration — like Lawrence H. Summers, who will be director of the National Economic Council — talking in detail about Mr. Obama’s economic proposals. That is following on a technique they used the first time to explain a complicated economic report this weekend. (His advisers said they had found in the campaign that using experts, even those not widely known, rather than employing familiar political faces in these types of videos was far more effective in engaging grass-roots supporters.)

I think this is an AWESOME idea–out with the old and in with the new.  We don’t need familiar faces to allay our fears with empty platitudes about the economic crisis…we need real experts, with real facts and figures, talking about real solutions.
