Democrats Embrace Bloggers

Democrats spar at blog gathering

Seven of the Democratic candidates for US president have fielded questions from more than 1,000 political bloggers at an annual convention in Chicago. Correspondents say the candidates’ presence reflects the growing influence of such bloggers, seen as a key resource by candidates. The candidates’ appearance at the YearlyKos Convention follows a presidential debate on YouTube in late July, when they answered questions posed solely via online videos. Senator Joe Biden was the only candidate not to attend.

Blogger Event Draws Democrats

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton refused Saturday to forsake campaign donations from lobbyists, turning aside challenges from her two main rivals with a rare defense of the special interest industry.

Notice that Democrats are at least giving the appearance of communicating with ‘the people’ who they want to lead. Notice the Republicans are less enthusiastic about hearing the thoughts of the people they want to subject to Theocratic suppression. I give Ron Paul the ‘brass orbs’ to stand against the neocon line and be the last great hope for what used to be the party of Lincoln.

    the dems are just hoping to co-op the bloggers. Glad to hear the kosies booed the hillery. There’s hope that the kos won’t become another bullshit group of dem cheerleaders, like the dogs at moveon…

    Clapso, the article says the KOS guy prefers Hillary, so far, even though he claims doesn’t agree with all her ideas. We need more quality choices.

    I’m not worried about what kos wants, it’s his followers that matter. If he is for someone and his group don’t follow him to the polls and vote for em. It won’t matter who he supports. That’s my hope, that the people that go to the kos site will balk at voting dem or repub and instead vote third parties…
