John McCain on his new website
Okay…we don’t like the color scheme, but the more we play with the site, the cooler we think it is. As a buddy of ours just said “no, not Darth Vader. He’s trying to tap in to the southern vote. You know, Dale Earnhardt, Johnny Cash.”
Here’s an email that just came from the McCain crew:
I am excited today to invite you to visit my new website, JohnMcCain.com. Here you will be able to keep up to date on all the latest happenings at John McCain 2008 – The Exploratory Committee and get involved in our efforts to bring common sense conservative reform and responsible government to Washington. Over the course of this campaign, JohnMcCain.com will continue to evolve and be updated. I hope you will visit often.
This website is our virtual campaign headquarters; and just like a real campaign headquarters, we would like to put you to work. I encourage you to join my team and become my link to your own community of family and friends, both online and in your neighborhood. When you visit JohnMcCain.com today, I would like to ask you to take three specific actions:
- If you have not already done so, please sign up to join our team. By signing up, we will keep you up to date with the latest from the campaign trail.
- After signing up, please create your own personal McCainSpace page, creating your headquarters inside our virtual campaign office.
- Finally, please recruit ten friends and family members through your McCainSpace page to join our team and make an online contribution.
The internet is transforming the world, including American politics. No longer is your participation in a presidential campaign dependent on living near a campaign office or being in an early primary state. At JohnMcCain.com, my campaign is building a strong online team of volunteers and providing you the information needed to make an informed decision in this election.
I have always believed in the value of straight talk and this website is designed to allow us to have a direct, honest conversation about the issues and challenges our nation faces. With that in mind, I invite you to tune in tomorrow morning, 10:00 AM Central Standard Time, for my first town hall meeting of this campaign. This town hall meeting will be broadcast live, from Des Moines, on the website. I hope you will join me and people across the country for this important event.
Thank you for all of your past support. I look forward to continuing to engage with you as this campaign progresses and I hope you will agree with me that this new tool, JohnMcCain.com, is an important piece of that conversation. Please share the new site with your friends and family.
