Who were those individuals whom Jesse Jackson and opera stood behind during the entire ceremony. Those people were the designers of the mind machine known as barack obama. There are also the his major campaign contributors. They were not afraid to show the world this time that they orchestrated this presidental campaign. They will no longer hide in the shadows like they did with the civil rights movement. Opera tried to act like she did not know the white guy she was crying on calling him" some average campaign supporter" When was the last time some average campaign supporter stood next to one of the most powerful people in the world during any kind of event. Thier bidding mr obama will do! stAY TUNED!
