Political PR online

In Ohio, U.S. Rep. Ted Strickland, a Democrat, has stocked his campaign website with video clips of speeches and TV commercials. MySpace.com and other websites display cyberspace bumper stickers that can be copied to promote Strickland's campaign for governor.

These candidates aren't alone. The Tory leader has a vidcast. Blogs wikis and podcasts are everywhere in the political PR space are there too.


"If you think of the Internet as a city, those social networking sites are virtual town squares where people spend time, where they share ideas, show their opinion, share information," said Keith Dailey, press secretary for Strickland's campaign.

And I guess that is a pretty good explanation.
