    This is only an excerpt. This article outlines six aspects of "supersuasion." 1. Simplicity ("Yes we can.") 2. Perceived self-interest (Convince 'em you care about 'em.) 3. Incongruity (not what you expect, where you expect it) 4. CONFIDENCE (You know more than they do; and everyone must know it.) 5. Empathy ("Ah feel yer pain.") 6. Humor (Disarming)

    I just saw a tv ad for what I see as "The Obama Show" on the National Geographic Channel. It appears to be inviting us to a "documentary" about obama being introduced to Air Force One.

    It is an extraordinary sight to walk into a basic two-room house under a mango tree in rural east Africa and discover what is essentially a shrine to Barack Obama. The small brick house with no running water, a tin roof and roving chickens, goats and cows is owned by Sarah Obama, Barack's 86-year-old step-grandmother. Inside, the walls are decorated with a 2008 Obama election sticker, an old "Barack Obama for Senate" poster on which he has written "Mama Sarah Habai [how are you?]", a 2005 calendar that says "The Kenyan Wonder Boy in the US", and more than a...

    Notorious D.C. Madam Debra Palfrey, whose long list of powerful prostitution clients kept the nation's lawmakers quaking, was murdered! That's the buzz rocking the Internet and filtering through political circles after she was found hanging by a nylon rope in a shed next to her mother's home in Tarpon Springs, Fla., earlier this month. Just weeks before her death, Palfrey, 52, had been found guilty of running a call-girl service that catered to Washington's power brokers. She faced four to six years in prison and was stated to be sentenced on July 24 but was appealing the vereict. So far,...

    Choir director at White House Hopeful's controversial Chicago church shot to death. Presidential hopeful Barack [Hussein] Obama has become tangled in a gay-murder probe rocking his controversial Chicago church as insiders ask: How much does he really know about the choir director's savage slaying? So far, Chicago cops' investigation into the murder of the Trinity United Christian Church's gay choir director has come up empty. But a top Chicago private detective tells GLOBE he believes the shooting death of 47-year-old Donald Young may be connected to Obama, who belongs to the church once headed by scandal-scarred preacher the ["]Rev.["] Jeremiah...

    Its five strands of diamonds covered her decolletage and made the Queen's jewels look quite modest as they attended the Queen's banquet for the Commonwealth Heads of Government in Kampala, Uganda, on Friday. But Camilla didn't deliberately set out to overshadow her mother-in-law - the Queen gave her permission to borrow it from the royal collection. Camilla's favourite couturier, Anna Valentine, designed her a simple duck-egg blue dress and matching stole to set off the necklace, estimated to be worth tens of millions of dollars. The Duchess added the Queen Mother's Boucheron tiara, a set of diamond earrings and...
  • Security Concerns Erase Appearance by Clinton

    The Bakersfield Californian ^ | | Sunday, Nov 18 2007 9:05 PM | na
    Security concerns led to cancellation of a high-ticket fundraiser for Hillary Clinton originally scheduled for Sunday at the Kern County Fairgrounds. The breakfast event, sponsored by Bakersfield group Sikh Americans for Hillary '08, could have brought in more than $1.5 million to Clinton's presidential campaign coffers. One thousand tickets ranging from $1,500 to $2,300 a plate were on the table for the Democratic hopeful. Clinton and her husband, former President Bill Clinton, had been scheduled to appear. But security personnel who looked over the site, said Dr. Shivinder Deol, one of Clinton's local Sikh supporters, decided it was too risky.
