We know with the success of MoveOn.org and others that the internet is a powerful tool for nonviolent change. Jose Antonio Vargas has an interesting piece the other day in The Washington Post, "Online, GOP Is Playing Catch-Up," showing the Dems about four years ahead of the Republicans. He's looking at presidential candidate website hits, use of social networking sites, and internet fund-raising. It seems that the Democrats inability to agree on anything is actually a better fit for the internet than the disciplined, party line of the Republicans.
My colleague, Adrienne, has a blog you may also find relevant. Politics & PR: Communication and Conservative Commentary "will focus on the intersection of communication theory and politics." Take a look and learn!
