Benjamin Netanyahu, the hard-line ex-Prime Minister of Israel who is running again for the post, fashioned his website to look almost identical to that of Barack Obama’s campaign site BarackObama.com.
The New York Times says in reference to Netanyahu’s website, “The colors, the fonts, the icons for donating and volunteering, the use of videos, and the social networking Facebook-type options--including Twitter, which hardly exists in Israel--all reflect a conscious effort by the Netanyahu campaign to learn from the Obama success.”
Is Netanyahu a shameless copycat, or someone who’s not afraid to recognize excellence and follow in its footsteps?
