Curtain Up: Power Line Candidates’ Forum

Last week I apologized for having neglected the fragile health of dear old Dartblog. Today I’ve lifted the veil from the project that has stolen my time over the last several weeks: The Power Line Candidates’ Forum. For the first time, a party’s leading presidential contenders have coalesced at one website to engage with the party faithful in an open discussion. It’s awfully neat.

You can read the press release here.

But far more importantly, head on over, sign up for an account, and get posting. If only for my sake: As you might imagine, managing a project like the Candidates’ Forum is difficult, from both the IT perspective (I don’t code anymore, but directing the coders takes time and thought, too) and from a business and strategy perspective. We needed to get five political candidates tightly vyying for a nomination to agree to a level playing field. In the end, we did, and I think the result will be healthy for this campaign in the particular and the ‘conservative netroots’ cause in general. I hope you enjoy it.

    D Afraid of a Little Competish

    How Regents Should Reign
    As Dartmouth alumni proceed through the legal hoops necessary to defuse a Board-packing plan—which put in unhappy desuetude an historic 1891 Agreement between alumni and the College guaranteeing a half-democratically-elected Board of Trustees—it strikes one…
