Behind the Victory

There are many folks who played critical roles in Obama's Tuesday victory. For one, the massive number of volunteers from coast-to-coast played an absolutely integral role in educating and inspiring voters, getting folks to the polls and warming millions to the possibility of an Obama presidency. Other key contributors were Howard Dean, Bill Richardson, Colin Powell, the media (I will not deny that most big news outlets were in favor of Obama), Jennifer Granholm, Caroline Kennedy, Joe Biden, Ted Kennedy, Brian Schweitzer, Bruce Springsteen, Warren Buffett, and thousands of others, but without the following two folks, his chances of winning would've been decreased substantially.
