KEYNOTE SPEAKER Obama’s Unsung Hero

After winning the election on November 4, 2008, President Obama called Plouffe “the unsung hero of this campaign, who built the… best political campaign, I think, in the history of the United States of America.” Credited with achieving one of the biggest upsets in American political history, his campaign generated a brand loyalty program with unprecedented success.
