There’s knowing who you are and there’s knowing who you are. As Governor Dean showed up at the rally tonight, the throng immediately surrounded him. The energy was palpable.
Standing just behind the scrum was campaign manager Joe Trippi. I stepped back – “Joe — I’m the guy who’s been helping Mathew with the blog.”
“I’m Rick Klau.”
“No way! You’re Rick Klau? You ROCK!” I then got a bear hug from Joe Trippi.
That the campaign manager for the frontrunning presidential campaign not only knows who I am but is actually appreciative of my volunteer work is nothing short of amazing.
My visibility (such as it is) to the campaign is a direct result of this weblog. In much the same way that the Dean campaign is giving individual voters a voice on a national stage, weblogs are just one more way an individual can have an impact on the national stage in a remarkable way.
