Me, I'd have to say that - while I liked the spot last night -my favorite official Obama promotion is this one calling on voters to make history. If Obama wins, Jeff Yang makes the case over at NPR that Obama would not only be our nation's first Black president but, with roots in Indonesia and Hawaii, he could be thought of as the first (culturally) Asian American president as well (you'll have to listen to if you want to be convinced, the write-up at NPR's site is pretty weak).
