A WEEK IN THE LIFE OF BARACK OBAMA

7 DAYS

Anonymous “mash-up” artists created an anti-Hillary Rodham Clinton, pro-Obama campaign ad, based on the iconic 1984 Apple ad, and distributed it on YouTube. Obama’s camp denied any involvement, but the San Francisco Chronicle called it the 2008 race’s “most stunning and creative attack ad yet.” On Sunday, MySpace launched a new channel where presidential candidates can host personal pages. Obama quickly garnered a whopping 67,000 “friends,” leaving his foes in the dust.
