That is easily the most misleading headline ever posted on this blog.

From Businesswire.com
Pool.com chief executive officer Tony Farrow today made a special delivery to U.S. Senator Barack Obama (D-Illinois): he returned the Senator's campaign Web site address, http://www.barackobama.com/. Pool.com, based in Ottawa, Canada and a leader in web backordering and secondary market sales, rescued the site address when it expired and was available on the open market.

"Websites are important vehicles to provide information to constituents and to boost participation in the political process," Obama said. "In the wrong hands, a web address can be used to mislead and misrepresent a public official's record. That is why I am extremely grateful that Pool.com allowed me the opportunity to renew my domain and ensure that the information on the page reflects my values and beliefs."
More campaign domain news:

whois.com says that www.blagorgeous.com is registered to Avenet, LLC. -- the company behind Rod's campaign web site.

But the really interesting news from whois.com is that www.blagorgeousforpresident.com is still available.
