Newsweek has been running some after-the-fact, behind-the-scenes stories that had been embargoed until after the election. I'm finding them fascinating.
Here's a tidbit I particularly liked:
At the end of August, as Hurricane Gustav threatened the coast of Texas, the Obama campaign called the Red Cross to say it would be routing donations to it via the Red Cross home page. Get your servers ready—our guys can be pretty nuts, Team Obama said. Sure, sure, whatever, the Red Cross responded. We've been through 9/11, Katrina, we can handle it. The surge of Obama dollars crashed the Red Cross Web site in less than 15 minutes.
We are the best damn supporters any campaign ever had.
