Oh, For Goodness Sake

According to The New York Times there are advanced negotiations between the Obamas and Netflix to produce a series of high-profile shows that will provide a global platform for Barack and Michelle.

Some examples for shows include, though are not limited to, the following:

  • Barack Obama moderating conversations on topics such as health care, voting rights, immigration, foreign policy, climate change.
  • Michelle Obama on topics such as nutrition, that she championed in the White House.
  • The Obamas endorsing specific (those that align with their beliefs and values) documentaries or fictional programming on Netflix.

It all sounds very interesting. Hopefully we’ll know more soon.

Misinformation Encourages Philadelphians to Cancel Their Own Votes

Misinformation encouraging people in Philadelphia to cancel their own votes has been circulating on Tuesday, and Obama field operatives have begun trying to correct the rumor on the ground. The rumor, which has spread in urban and predominantly African American areas of Philadelphia that tilt towards Barack Obama, wrongly instructed voters to first select an All Democratic voting slate and then cast another vote specifically for Obama. That second vote has the effect of canceling the original vote, according to two Democratic sources in Philadelphia.

Many voters are being told to vote for the President by BOTH checking the Straight Democrat Box and the Box for the President, explains an email from an Obama Voter Protection staffer targeting Philadelphia voters. That action cancels the vote, says the staffer, who instructed voters to do one or the other, but not both.

The Obama campaign has voter protection staff and attorneys on the ground trying to clarify the situation, and began sending emails as early as 9:16am today. Concerns about the rumor began bubbling up early this morning, including one 7:46am tweet warning against the confusing double-vote option.
