    the front page of Kos was what got Kos invited to the convention and raised the blog to prominence within the community

    Are you saying that the DNC recognizes blogs for the power of communication inherent within them, and that's why they invited kos to the convention? That's a new twist.

    I've always been of the opinion that they let kos into the convention for much the same reason that they let Marua in VA into the convention: because she proved that she could raise money.

    •  ugh. (none)
      M-A-U-R-A. Sorry, Maura.

      I'll take this opportunity, though, to say that what I mean by it being a "new twist," is that I thought we all thought the DNC would never "get it," and would never see that blogs and bloggers are a constituency they need to include for its own sake, as opposed to a way to raise money from people they hadn't previously been able to reach.

      The idea that it's the sheer force of kos' rhetoric that pried open the doors of the palace is a new tack.
