WordPress’s video function still not ideal, but better

At the end of the primaries, I made a video of the results showing the relative time scale over which they occurred and posted it to Flickr. Unfortunately, I could not (or at least I don’t think I could) embed it in my blog, because WordPress.com doesn’t allow for conventional video embeds, and works around this by having custom functions for a set of the most popular flash video sites. I don’t think that Flickr was on the list in June, but I may be mistaken. Anyway, here’s the embedded video, just because I can:

The color code is that Obama is blue, Clinton is red and Edwards is green. I put together the video a while ago, but I believe that I still have the files, so if someone like wu ming, who I know liked having Obama green, Clinton blue, Edwards red, wants me to make such a color swapped version, I can, just leave a comment or email me. I know that this contest finished months ago, so it may not be particularly relevant to anyone right now.

Anyway, the real point of this post was just to embed the video, which I had hoped to embed months ago, on this site. I’ll update my Democratic Primary Maps page shortly
