Trippi: Why he's joined Edwards
Talking to Mother Jones magazine, the architect of the revolutionary Howard Dean campaign explains why he's decided to join the John Edwards for President campaign -- and, no surprise, much of the answer has to do with technology.
He's also impressed by Edwards' effort to build a community of voters that would offer policy feedback and support well after Edwards is elected—something Dean was also interested in, he said, but never got to implement.
Of course, it's his analysis of how much more mature the 2008 cycle is technologically that's really compelling.
"By the end of 2008, I think people will look back at the Dean campaign and say, 'Wow, it was so primitive, it was so yesterday,'" Trippi said. "I still think any of these campaigns are capable of just blowing the doors off and transforming our politics, and that's really likely to happen in 2008."
Pretty much. Yeah.
