    ...I even wrote a couple of mails to his campaign with advice on campaign-tactics and on how to handle the Clintons. I was sure, that nobody would even notice (with them probably getting thousands of mails daily) and then, a couple of days later on TV, I hear Obama virtually quoting from the letter I wrote!
    You see, I live in a very multicultural neighbourhood in Amsterdam, where the majority is Muslim. Here, I'm involved with community organizing and a couple of weeks ago had this great conversation with Ali, an elderly Moroccon man who lives in my street. He explained to me that he is praying for Obama to win every day - and his voice was trembling with emotion when he said that. I asked him why and he told me that with Obama's biography, he knows the people and their cultural background in Muslim and developing countries (as opposed to others who just knows their leaders)... Sounds familiar?
    Of course - Plouffe or Axelrod could have had the same idea - but I (and Ali, of course) just love the idea, that his thought could have had an impact on the US election!
