Fernando - you make great points. You could even be right. I would definitely agree that a candidate who did not use the internet for the campaign would be at a huge disadvantage. However, I disagree that technology can't have a "huge break-thru impact" on presidential politics. New ideas, and new marketing campaigns are happening all the time. It's only a matter of time before someone figures out how to leverage the internet to get people to hop onto their candidates bandwagon. Furthermore, You-Tube and Big Think videos or blog postings of candidates will have a major impact on election results in 2008. A video of a candidate making a mistake or saying contradictory statements will spread like a Martina Navatolova (sp>) virus!
