David Miliband’s Leadership Video

David Miliband has released a video to try and woo the Labour Party membership to support his campaign.  He makes education the focus of the video and manages to strike the balance between intellect and ‘man-of-the-people’ perfectly.

The sound bite “we are all equal on polling day” and pointing out the party will have to come back together once the leadership battle is over, were both highlights for me; the name-checking of Obama and the Kennedy ‘drop a pebble in a pond’ quotation were lows.

I imagine his detractors would have felt that the musical score and ‘looking to the horizon’ end frame was over-the-top, but for the less cynical it would have probably achieved the emotional connection that was desired.
