From Bowling to Basketball

After a not-so-successful trip to the lanes in Altoona, PA last month (it's never that exciting to be caught on camera rolling a gutter ball), Senator Barack Obama decided to shift his focus from bowling to basketball. This YouTube video shows Obama - a lot more comfortable on the court - playing 3-on-3 at Maple Crest Middle School in Indiana.

The Obama campaign's head of new media, Joe Rospars, told us this is just another example of the Obama campaign using campaign trail footage to give voters a clearer picture of the Senator's character and identity. More than any other campaign in the race, the Obama team has taken advantage of YouTube to give snapshots of 'life on the trail' - these days it's not uncommon to see 3 or 4 videos from the Senator's speeches, rallies, and meetings surface on their YouTube channel in one day.
