  •  My biggest complaint about the Dean campaign ... (none)
    ... towards the end was that every email was asking for money. There were no issues-based emails or news about what could be done to help with the campaign. It was all donate, donate, donate!

    It was ironic during the primaries that by Iowa Kerry had a much better web site than Dean. Kerry's web site was better organized, more up-to-date, and more professional looking.

    The Republicans saw how powerful the Internet could be during the Democratic primaries and made it a Republican advantage over the Democrats and the Kerry campaign.

    •  everybody used the phone (none)
      I was called to volunteer by Iowans for Dean, then later Kerry Edwards, the Iowa Dems, Moveon and ACT.  And I think for recruiting volunteers the phone is more effective.

      I was a happy volunteer for Dean, moveon and ACT.  I was disappointed in the relative lack of coordination between moveon and ACT, and felt pulled in two directions last summer trying to do both.

      And I actually looked forward to getting emails--I actually kind of miss having a full inbox.

      •  If you're talking about MoveOn Pac (none)
        I believe it's illegal for ACT (a 527) to coordinate activities with a PAC.

      •  I'm grateful to have my snail mail box back (none)
        We had a guy running for the state assembly spend $5 Million of his own money on his campaign. I received 2 pieces of mail from him on a daily basis during October.

        Thankfully, he lost.

        I think he spent more money trying to win an assembly seat than the total spent by the Bill Jones campaign to beat Boxer.
