It is clearly observed that some of the journalists and other personalities who attended the White House correspondents’ dinner were non-Obama buttons bearing. It was indicative of their highest degrees of professionalism that they graced the occasion regardless of their persuasions. They in turn got first hand vital signs of President Obama’s about to end first term and his bid for re-election. What they saw, felt and the manner they were entertained during the course of socialization made them go home to bring mixed thoughts to ponder upon. They may be for, against or simply onlookers on Obama.
Undoubtedly, many of those in attendance were within Obama’s sphere and determined to support him until the finish line. They constituted the biggest chunk of the pie. They dispersed after the dinner possibly to double, triple or even quadruple their numbers. Indeed, they constituted the strength of numbers for Obama come November 06.
In totality, the dinner afforded valuable time for the Obama campaign to assess so far, what were already accomplished and the ones about to be won. Also, extending the strategy to the areas of the trail that will still to be reached. And then, to refuel for the next move to boost the campaign to insure success in every corner of the trail to guaranty the long cherished victory in the polling places.
