I haven’t declared my favorite Democratic presidential candidate yet. Not that it matters, but I like all of them and have thus far stayed out of campaigning for any of them. They all have their big pluses. Sen. Obama though is really pulling in the grassroots support. While John Edwards may have the best website and best use of social networking tools…hello twitter (note: I used to do some consulting work for Edwards and I told him what a Jello shot is) Barack Obama’s use of email for fundraising is really cool.
Supporters get an email asking for money and then there is a live tally of how many people have given and a total as well as goals for total number of participants and money raised. Very Dean circa 2003.
