Bloggers Influencing Capitol Hill?
Rob Bluey explains “How bloggers took on Harry Reid and won on earmark reform.”
That Congressional leadership is listening to bloggers is interesting, as is the increasing outreach by Members to the blogosphere.

That’s the kind of inside baseball politics that has generally been ignored.
