Blogs and Congress

The Washington newspaper The Hill has an interesting article on the ever growing relationship between Congress and bloggers here.

Some Democratic leaders see bloggers doing for their party what talk radio did for the Republicans in the 1980's. However, the radicalism of the left wing blogs may push the Democratic Party out of the mainstream. At the Daily Kos, a recent poll gave House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi a 19% approval rating, while Howard Dean -- who is arguably edging the party closer to a political cliff -- garners an 84% approval rating.

An entity that overwhelmingly sees Ms. Pelosi as too conservative may not be the best one to set the tone of the party for the next round of elections.
