It is widely acknowledged that Barack Obama put together the best minds and team together to run his campaign. One of the proof points is that his website www.barackobama.com was driven by MySQL!
From Jonathan's blog:
" On behalf of Sun Microsystems, I would like to offer my sincerest congratulations to President elect Barack Obama. What an extraordinary accomplishment.
I would also like to extend my congratulations
to his web team for
having chosen MySQL as the platform behind their election web site, BarackObama.com. "
