How Blogs Change Campaigning, Pt. 1

C-Notes dug up this tidbit in last nights spin room, from Hillary consultant Doug Hattaway:

    During the 2000 election we had only, like, three guys on the campaign running the website. And their only goal was to just make sure not to screw up. The campaigns now have to go 24-7. We had our staff reading the blogs during the debate to see what they were talking about so that we knew what to prepare for before coming into [the spin room] to answer questions.[Emphasis Added]
