Candidates Missed a Great Blogosphere Media Spike Opportunity

I’m sitting here at BlogHer watching Elizabeth Edwards interviewed by Lisa Stone, BlogHer founder and journalist. We’re all very excited she’s here. A blogger from the Edwards campaign is also here, as is a representative from the Clinton campaign.

Obama’s headquarters is down the street. No one from his campaign is here. I just commented Zephyr Teachout’s post at TechPresident about this. We’re excited they will all be present at the Yearly KOS conference here in Chicago at the end of the week responding to that invitation from the progressive Democratic blogger communities.

So what do we need to do to get the nominees to come next year to BlogHer? As I noted in my comment referenced above, we have huge communities of swing voters represented here from all over the political spectrum.
