  •  what advice for political candidates? (5+ / 0-)

    This site's goal is to elect progressive Democrats.

    What advice do you have for candidates for elected office? They have incentives and pressures to make their private lives public (to the extent they engage in activities that the majority of their constituents approve of) -- to have an active Facebook presence, so sign their real name to letters, to get their name 'out there' attached to issues they work on, etc.

    Your advice is strongly worded to keep everything about yourself out of the public domain. How will you (or other dKossians) run for elected office if you do this?

    •  I didn't say keep everything out of public forums (0+ / 0-)

      What I've said is to keep your real world identity separate from your online persona.  Two different things.  And I did acknowledge in the intro to this diary that there are people that this simply won't work for - techies who depend on the web for their living, and as you note, public figures (or those who wish to be public figures, elected or otherwise).

      It is not impossible to maintain both, but it adds a whole 'nother level of complexity to make sure that there's no nexus between the two.

      We're resigned to our collective fate because we've been conditioned to believe that this is as good as it gets.
