<nettime> The Dean campaign and the Internet


Michael H. Goldhaber has this to say concerning Dean and the 
Internet

"I bring all this up in the hopes that nettimers will discuss this model 
of politics via the Internet and what it might portend/teach."


What is really astonishing is how much money the Dean has raised over 
the Web. However, I still have yet to receive anything via the Internet 
asking for a donation, and I'm on a million mailers. What also amazes me 
is that Dean is no better a public speaker than Bush, yet he remains the 
Democratic front-runner. I would just hate to see the Internet create 
the same political environment as television advertising - It reaches 
out to groups who are more or less uninformed of the issues and 
vulnerable at every turn.
