Nur fürs Protokoll: Bevor Barack Obama heute nacht seine von der (TV-)Weltöffentlichkeit viel beachtete, historische Rede im Grant Park in Chicago hielt, verschickte er eine Mail. Drei Millionen Mal – mit diesem Inhalt:
I‚Äôm about to head to Grant Park to talk to everyone gathered there, but I wanted to write to you first.
We just made history.
And I don‚Äôt want you to forget how we did it.
You made history every single day during this campaign ‚Äî every day you knocked on doors, made a donation, or talked to your family, friends, and neighbors about why you believe it‚Äôs time for change.
I want to thank all of you who gave your time, talent, and passion to this campaign.
We have a lot of work to do to get our country back on track, and I‚Äôll be in touch soon about what comes next.
But I want to be very clear about one thing‚Ä¶
All of this happened because of you.
