Glenn Reynolds, aka Instapundit, has some observations about weblogs in presidential politics from today’s BloggerCon. This nugget in particular was quite insightful:
In this cycle, and (perhaps) the next one, blogs will have more relevance in the run-up to the primary than in the general elections. Blogs aren’t tools of mass persuasion, and won’t be at least until there’s a “mass.” And maybe not even then. But they’re great at building buzz, and mobilizing interested people. That’s more relevant in the early stages than the late ones.
(Thanks Ernie for the pointer.)
