    I guess that depends on how much effort you want to put in and whether you want a long term income from it or not.

    Wow, you are very fast to capitalize on it.

    I think you should post news content to garner more traffic first before monetizing it.

    They should have bought ASSETS instead.

    You should try selling it on a free marketplace like http://www.webunload.com and see what happens.

    Yeah, I agree with rendell. Get the traffic first with good content. Then start sticking your hand into their wallets later.

    Interesting domain. Good call. - Russ

    Thanks for your advise. I am working on it already.

    Have added adsense with few news and Obama's Biodata.

    Should I add a forum to it?

    I like the forum idea. Once the traffic builds up, you may not want to sell it...

      Well, if it is about Palin,

      contents
      1) Pictures and videos - lots of it
      2) Funny content, cartoons or jokes about palin
      3) News excerpt that is negative against her
      4) Cartoons (visit my site for an ideas)

      Monetize:
      1) Adsense
      2) sell her figurine (nut cracker etc) (affiliate with those geek stuff)
      3) sell her costume

        I admire the entrepreneurial spirit that you've shown here, however, I always like to begin with the end in mind.

        I don't know that you should snatch a domain and THEN ask "now what can I do with it?"

        It would be better to plan out how it fits into your overall business model and then determine whether you will keep it or sell it and what you will do with it BEFORE buying it.

        What you have now, is a $10 distraction.

        Just my $0.02.

        (Edit: I suppose if I saw "heylookat.me" available, I might snatch it up right away too, I'm just saying)

          Hi Chris, you made a great point but surely we've all been bitten by the run out and buy the alleged great domain name and then do nothing with it bug at least once!

          I really love your phrase "$10 distraction." I have hundreds of them!

          I even jumped on the .me bandwagon like many and amongst others bought,

          slimmer.me
          wealthier.me

          only to find that my personal (rather than business) hosting provider will not even allow .me domains on the server I rent because they have not signed up to some agreement or other. So they're all sitting there doing nothing as I have far better things to do with my time than develop them.

          Didn't mean that I didn't have some great ideas about what to do with them at the time. I should get around to selling them all. But it's like everything else...time and hassle.

          I also think Henry showed some real entrepreneurial spirit.

          Good luck with it, Henry.

            Yes, it can be a hard urge to resist. I grapple with these kinds of things all day long.

        There's a reason for that. Hustler produced a porn called Nailin Paylin.

        On the prank phone call, the fake president of France said that he enjoyed the Hustler documentary and called it edgy.


        (NSFW)
        "Nailin Paylin": Hustler's Palin Porn Details

        That's a link to the newspaper article in Huffington Post so there's no nudity, but I'll label it Not Safe For Work.

        So, you should definitely grab an affiliate link to that, even if it is only for "Looking for this instead, go here" type.

      Yeah, get in a time machine, go back to August, and monetize it.

      Now that the election is over, she'll be back in Alaska, out of the national news, and by the time Obama is sworn in, half the people won't remember who McCain's running mate was.

      Even those who hated her won't care now that she's out of the picture.

      You might as well be trying to monetize a Dukakis or Ferraro site.

    I think I will set up a domain focused on third party candidates. Lots of unhappy republicans today. But domains related to the election are pretty much worthless today, actually.

      There's a ton of Obama names at eBay now. O-B-A-M-A.com sold yesterday for a couple hundred I think it was.

      Earlier this year after remembering ImpeachBush.com sold for $10,000 or so, I got ImpeachPresidentObama.net and ImpeachBarackObama.net. I don't know if I want to sell them though because I'm a big Obama supporter. :-0

      Ron, that's a cool theme. I might grab that one for CollectObama.com :-)

    Thanks All.
    From all analysis here, I would want to settle for the following:
    1. Make it a Forum
    2. Use adsense
    3. Add news of both the winning and opposition
    4. spot some negatives of Obama to arouse traffic
    5. Get Amazon and ebay stuff related to the president
    6. Get To add views of Jese Jackson who tried but it did not work for him
    7. Bring in greate writers: for and pro Obama
    8. See it going and see what I would do next.
    More suggestions needed... and highly appreciated from Warrios

    If I had that, I'd be selling memorabilia. You could easily set up a CafePress store with all kinds of Obama T-shirts, coffee mugs. Get other stuff too from other suppliers. Maybe posters. Flags. Promote Amazon books. You could build that into a pretty cool store.

    Maybe I will buy some old political domains for half of the reg fee and set up some tshirt shops on them. Lots of democrats and republicans out there - sell stuff like the " Don't blame me, I voted for McCain" shirts.
