Subtle Political Messages

Today presidential candidate, Barack Obama made a speech about patriotism in Independence, Missouri.

Last week, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, in their first public appearance together since Obama clinched the nomination made a speech about unity in Unity, New Hampshire.

Coincidence? I think not.

It’s interesting that the campaign chose these specific locations that clearly connected with the topics of the speeches.

This way, if a person sitting at home watching the evening news, but not really paying attention happened to hear the name of the location (since the where of a story is important and will definitely be said by the reporter) the speech may resonate with them, or the important word: independence and unity, might stick out in their minds.
