In his post Momentum, Rick Klau makes a good point. We’ve been hearing the bad news that 2/3 of Democrats can’t even name a single one of the presidential candidates. (Thanks to the lousy coverage of issues so important to an informed democracy by our “liberal media.”)
Rick points out:
“This presidential campaign is very, very different. We have candidates who are raising more money from more people than ever before (proving that people are interested in politics, and willing to put their money where their mouths are). We have campaigns who are redefining what it means to build grassroots organizations. And at a time when 2/3 of Democrats still can’t name a single candidate in the race, campaigns are turning out tens of thousands people to hear them speak.”
That’s right – never before have we seen crowds of 5,000 or 15,000 people turning out to see candidates before the first primary. This time, both Dean and Kerry have been drawing crowds like that! When people start to pay attention to the campaign, it’s going to be just amazing!
