Politics and blogs

We were talking in class a bit back about the next presidential election and the Internet - today the New York Times has a piece about John Edwards and his decision to keep two liberal feminist bloggers on his campain staff - the risk is that their freewheeling postings may draw him some heat later down the road.

What a fantastic article. I was blown away by the amount of research the reporter must have put into this, tracking down bloggers and getting the interviews. I liked that he had a lot of young voices and art to go with this article.

I do have to agree with the premise. I am an older student and very shy about talking about myself. I am torn between admiration and fear for younger students who blog with reckless abandon.
