Why Gary Hart Wants To Blog

from the it's-the-thing-to-do dept

Last year there was plenty of attention paid to one single (long shot) candidate for Congress because she set up her own blog. Now, it seems that lots of politicians are getting into the blogging concept. Wired News is running an article about why potential Presidential candidate Gary Hart started a blog, saying that it’s to get his ideas out there and see how people respond – as he explores the idea of a Presidential run. How long will it be until all political candidates have a blog? Of course, I would bet that many politicians who simply don’t understand the web will not actually write their own blogs, but pass that off to some staffer.
