History of bloggin and 2004 election
First Bloggercon took place in 2003 – Dean and Republicans in attendance
blogging might move politics back from wholesale (big marketing) to retail (door to door)
blogging is neutral as an exercise
how can a candidate become involved?
congressional vs senate races
2008 election – if things havent been show to work in midterm – scale of candidates amplified
great for raising money – not so good for delivering votes
