    This was really interesting. I didn’t know that there was an unpaid group of academic advisers helping in Obama’s campaign. It’s nice to know there is a growing interest in such individuals in a political setting. It’s also interesting that it is noted how utilizing academic advisers changed the language used in the campaign and that it was received well, especially by the younger populace. It would be nice to see campaigns that were more intellectually based debates rather than personal rumor and mud-slinging attacks.
