Trippi was campaign manager for Howard Dean for most of his presidential campaign. There is a lot in here about how the Internet came of age as a political tool. Trippi sees this as a truly revolutionary event, shifting power from on high to a much broader base. He takes extreme joy in recounting incidents in which bloggers had immediate impact on the campaign, making it the most interactive such campaign to date. I expect he sees himself in the role of midwife to the birth of a new political experience.
I did get the feeling that there are many tales yet to be told about the campaign, tales that may be unflattering to Trippi.
