Joe Trippi on Transformational Politics
Over at MyDD, Joe Trippi posted a diary explaining his view of "transformational" and "transactional" politics.
Its incredibly simple and defines what I now believe is the essential ingredient in any campaign or candidacy that hopes to be transformational.
And in the comments, he talks about why the internet is essential (and will help create) transformational politics:
My own view is that Television helped kill transformational politics because it took people out of the process and made chasing big money too important. I really believe -- indeed have always believed since about the mid-1990's that the Internet would help herald a new era of transformational politics because it puts back into the process the most essential ingredient of them all in a democracy -- the people.
