Today, DKos posted a reminder of the list of regular frontpage contributors who can be legitimately said to "represent" the Daily Kos as a publication. But what about the "membership" of Daily Kos? It's readers, like you, who make the site relevant?

Read on to cast your vote for "your Daily Kos Representative".

These people don't have any power other than their obvious power to post stories on the DKos front page, through the DKos editorial process (which is largely unknown to its readers). And they have the "power" to represent DKos when speaking in public, like being quoted by other media. But let's vote for them anyway. If nothing else, it will remind us of the similarity with voting for Democrats the past 12 years, who evidently had even less power, and perhaps continue to envy DKos "representatives" in their new potency, since this January's regaining the majority.

There weren't quite enough poll responses to include Jeremy or Adam B, or indeed even Kos. But they represent the entire site all the time, and are more like the Executive Branch. At least that's what their rigging the poll answer count has done to our once-proud, balanced republic.

FWIW, I voted for Kagro X. And I don't mind saying so.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
