Althouse asks (nicely, I might add, with a please and everything except the 'with sugar on top'), "What will be role of bloggers in the 2008 presidential election?"
I'll spot her the missing "the" and give my answer.
The role of bloggers on the left will be to help Democrats launder campaign cash while pulling the party towards unelectable positions. The role of bloggers on the right will be to basically be impotent beyond helping divide the Republican base even further.
But, mainly, it will just be people expressing themselves. In and of itself, that is a good thing with value.
