The guerilla politics of the 21st century
My dad and my uncle and I, for all our differences in politics, have always thought that it was the behind-the-man part of politics that was cool. I never ever talking about becoming president but did at one time talk about being a campaign manager. Those guys are crazy and their job is mad. Totally romantic.

Which I was reminded of again reading about Dean's genius Joe Trippi. It's interesting stuff, and applicable in the broader way of "playing outside the rules paying off."

Whatever you think of Dean, etc., Trippi's an interesting fellow who's done some interesting stuff that's gonna be copied for a few years, so it's worth looking at what he's doing, exactly.
