Campaign2008 Program Notes

We have a big day planned over at Virtual Vantage Points. Five VVP contributors will be offering their reaction to returns and analysis today and into the night. They include:
  • Scott McCellan, former White House spokesman under President George W. Bush
  • Congressman Don Bonker (D-WA), who served during the 90's and is an expert on international trade issues, including NAFTA
  • Ambassador Marc Ginsberg, the US Ambassador to Morocco in the Clinton Administration and a senior advisor for Middle East policy to President Carter
  • Craig Fuller, former chief of staff to then-Vice President George H.W. Bush
  • Bill Pierce, former spokesman for the US Department of Health and Human Services under Secretary Tommy Thompson
And of course, I'm leading a bi-coastal team that will be tweeting updates on the stories of the day and the latest returns @Campaign2008 on Twitter well into the night. Make sure you're following us - it will be like a souped-up RSS feed with breaking news updates.

Tomorrow, after the dust settles, I expect we'll see more reaction from other contributors like Cassandra Pye, former deputy chief of staff to Governor Schwarzenegger. Here at It's Not a Lecture, I'll give my take on the role social media played in the campaign and why it matters.

I just think it's important not only to talk about social media and politics, but also to show how it's done.
