OK, maybe a little free blogging. . .

Dave Cullen looks at the latest internet strategem from Howard Dean, and comes away impressed:

Today, Dean campaign manager Joe Trippi sent out a message to Dean supporters explaining this and asking for donations for Boswell. A few minutes ago, the Dean blog posted a gracious letter from Boswell saying, “This is one of the most exciting projects I have ever seen!” The entry also reported that the Boswell campaign has tracked over $30,000 in donations from Dean supporters today.

What a clever way to win the undying love of one of the most powerful Dem politicians in the critical state 47 days before the caucus.

And if it doesn’t bring an endorsement, it might at least head off one for local boy Gephardt.

That’s retail politics, Amazon.com-style. Smart.
