Dissecting the Netroots
Jonathan Chait over at New Republic did a fairly lengthy piece on the generally left-wing netroots, the bloggers and organizers who have become so important -- and rather quickly -- to the Democratic Party. He believes most of the netrooters were activated since 2000 -- many by the Florida recount -- and the most important thing to most of them is getting a Democrat in the White House in 2008. It's already aroused some controversy, but I found it a pretty informative read.
