The day after the Democratic National Convention which Sen. Barack Obama speech drew a bigger audience than the opening ceremonies of Beijing Olympics for television wasn’t even about Obama!
In fact when it came to the Presidential election all the media buzz was surrounding Sen. John McCain. It would take a BIG story to move the media spotlight away from Sen. Barack Obama whose speech made Oprah Winfrey cry her eyelashes off.
The BIG story that bumped Obama’s media Buzz surrounding his historical speech turned into headlines about McCain! The next day McCain announced that he had selected Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as his running mate. And so we begin the headlines turned away from Obama Who? To WHO is Sarah Palin?
While McCain pulled the greatest PR move in his campaign’s history and certainly shook things up. Was this good press or bad press? Was it even a smart career move?
