the ramp up

Back in 2004, the response to Dean for America's internet strategy was that Joe Trippi had started a revolution in political organizing. It all seems a little quaint now as the presumptive candidates for 2008 start to ramp things up. Former Senator (and VP candidate) John Edwards' One America site has a little too much going on, but it's impressive nevertheless if only because of the range of opportunities visitors to the site have to get involved. (And, of course, the site takes full advantage of Edwards' good looks through the video clips and photos.) And, according to Joshua Clayborn at In the Agora, Senator Evan Bayh (D-IN) is apparently holding meetings with bloggers.

I'll be watching for (and posting) what the other candidates are doing moving forward.

Sen Bayh met with about a dozen Indiana area bloggers for a lunch and spent about an hours answering their questions... I unfortunately had to work so I couldn't go, but if you look on my blog you can see who all did go and their reviews of it.

Thanks for sharing, Rob. People can click on your name and head over to your site to see what you have to say. Next time you need to get the day off!
