Optimizely aims to give Obama 2012 a data edge

(CNNMoney) - The Obama 2008 campaign's pioneering technology use gave rise to a batch of Silicon Valley startups that are commercializing tools created for the campaign. This article is the first in a series, "America's Choice 2012: The Data Edge," covering those startups and the role they're playing in the 2012 presidential election.

NEW YORK (CNNMoney) - In late 2007, Dan Siroker - one of the masterminds behind Google's Chrome browser - heard then-Senator Barack Obama speak at the Googleplex. That talk prompted Siroker to leave behind his job at Google and join Obama's campaign as its director of analytics.

    All we need Mr President are more jobs and fiscal responsibility from you. This means you MUST stop the deficit spending and reduce the debt. NOTHING you have said or done has come close to making us believe you wish to fix the deficit budget spending which is out of control, or reduce our debt. When you being to tackle those REAL issues, you will get my vote again, but not before.
