There's a new show debuting on ABC Tuesday, August 7 called iCaught and I'm one of the featured stories, so go ahead and check that out : )
Nice post here calling me Obama's biggest bonus (so not true though!)
Pic below is Larry (director) and me in Charleston airport flying back form debates.
And from the Myrtle Beach News last week who covered those debates:
CHARLESTON. Minutes after Democratic presidential candidates debated last week in Charleston, the "spin room" where campaign aides tout their bosses to reporters started to buzz.
Not because of the candidates or campaign strategists streaming in, many of whom held signs overhead to advertise their availability for chatter. Not for the Hollywood types hanging out. Certainly not for the media.
Rather, the buzz was for Amber Lee Ettinger. She's the swimsuit model who starred in the video, "I've Got a Crush on Obama. " That made her a symbol of how much the Internet - particularly videos on it - are changing at least the mechanics of politics this year.
From nontraditional productions like hers - seen nearly 3 million times - to the way politicians such as Mitt Romney learned from the "macaca" moment meltdown last year by former Virginia Sen. George Allen, the world of politics is changing. Explosive growth in the number of videos sent racing 'round the world on the Web is opening new ways for people to learn about politicians, and new ways for politicians to communicate with potential voters.
Often, as in the case of Ettinger's Obama-girl video, productions are outside the control of traditional political-message gatekeepers - the campaigns and mainstream media. Clever, sexy or funny, the videos draw large audiences, but their effect on voting is so far unknowable.
