Recipes of success & failure?

Yes we can. This now famous and much repeated slogan from the president elect of the USA and next 44th president, Barack Obama, is more than a campaign slogan. It denotes a long term strategy to get into the white house and make history as the first afro-american president. The question is, what made Obama succeed and what are the reasons for McCain's failure?. Beyond the technicalities (a perfect internet-based communication and social networking, etc) , which constitute the superficial layer, what are the key characteristics of candidate Obama that helped him in the way to reach his endeavor (core values)? on the opposite, why did McCain fail? what is it that went wrong not only in his campaign, but most importantly in his character, beyond the flops of negative adds and other political tricks?. Is there anything we can learn from this event that can help us boost a positive and successful spirit in our community?.

Thanx Mustapha, a nice topic.

Thanx Mustapha, a nice topic. For this first comment, I will outline the strengths of Obama's bid for President of United States. To my thinking I saw 3 major points: - First Obama's personality: Throughout the Campaign he appeared consistent, confortable, wise, with a clear vision and program, and on top of that, more connected with the average citizen. - His Campaign: was oustanding, avoiding the attacks, and most of all involving EVERYONE (the basis) in the outreach to voters. - The current situation in US: was very favorable to a CHANGE (which was his main slogan), especially ECONOMY and WAR (international relations).
