Here is another reason why these early predictions for 2008 are mindless. You never know what gaffes and mistakes candidates are going to make in the interim. John Edwards has learned what all candidates will in the near future, if you are going to hire a blogger, read their blog first. And in its entirety. Bloggers are dangerous for campaigns, because they rarely see the need to censor themselves, and they don't have editors. This is fine from a free speech point of view, but is disastrous in a national campaign, with a plethora of groups in our society just longing to take offense at something. 2008 is a long way off.
