From Jim Gilliam's blog archives
Today, Politics Changed Forever

June 30, 2003 9:00 PM

I'm a pessimist. Seems like I always have been, except for one thing - the Internet.

Politics has always received a disproportionate share of my pessimism. The one hope I've held out for our political system was the Internet. Maybe, just maybe, the Internet would be the catalyst to shift the balance of power away from the elites and back into the hands of the people, ultimately saving our republic.

Today, that power became evident, changing politics forever. In 2005 there will be a White House blog.

Now, the glass is half full.

Jim Gilliam:

Yup, I certainly will. We're trying to figure out what to do about our venue since it looks like there will be 3 times the number of people it can handle. A good problem to have!

Dean made the front page of the L.A. Times. I noticed that he did *not* make the front page of the OC Register. Maybe, because Dean is not a Republican?

By the way, the comments link kind of blends in with the categories.
