I am no Democrat, but John Edwards gets my vote December 29, 2006Posted by sdpurtill in Uncategorized.
First of all, there is no Libertarian candidate up for the 08 election, so I am free to vote for whoever I want. By upbringing, I am very conservative; but let me tell you why John Edwards already has my vote for the 2008 election.
#1 – He announced that he is running on YouTube
How effing cool is that? Obviously you have some campaign managers that know what is going on in the world
#2 – Robert Scoble was invited to go and follow his campaign
Yes — THE Scobleizer, is on the road right now covering the campaign. Again, how effing cool is that?
#3 – He is on Facebook
#4 – He is on Myspace
#5 – He is on Flickr
#6 – His campaign managers must understand the word Web 2.0…
#7 – He takes pictures of himself helping to rebuild New Orleans with little kids with shovels in the background
Ok, that’s just a fat joke… That’s a reason I wouldn’t vote for him — Mark Cuban’s post on this.
And for those reasons, he has my vote. Now, if any Republican (like McCain) hires a campaign manager that has a clue about Web 2.0, I’ll vote for him instead, simply because I’d rather see a Republican in office.
Thank you John Edwards, you have my vote.
