Take a look over at Josh Marshall’s interview of Wes Clark. It’s a good overview of the candidate and worth a read.
Update: The folks maintaining the Clark blog have changed the text of the post. It originally read “This is the first time a blogger has interviewed a presidential candidate.” It now reads “This is the first time a blogger has interviewed Clark.” Kudos for the quick correction.
Update #2 (10/2/03, 9:41am): Thanks to dean4me2004 in my comments, I see that the Clark guys have changed the language again, this time to say that “This is the first time a blogger has interviewed a presidential candidate face-to-face.” Not really. David Weinberger, well-known blogger (and NPR commentator) rode the press bus during the Sleepless Summer Tour in August and did interview Dean (entries were cross-posted to the Campaign Blog as well). Now, if we want to get picky, David didn’t publish a long-ish transcript of his interview. But still… this is getting silly.
Update #3 (10/3/03, 10:02pm): Turns out we were all wrong. The distinction of first blogger to interview a presidential candidate belongs to Jerome Armstrong, who interviewed Howard Dean in June, 2002. Details here.
