The Next Battlefield

The next presidential battlefield are the social networking sites. You can track the results over at techPresident, a site that seems to be run by a delightful combination of tech political nerds.

Obama is dominate in the MySpace friend count contest, with over 44,000 friends. Hillary is a distant second with over 23,000.

The GOP is just not competitive in this race McCain has just 1,300 friends and Giuliani just 651.

This of course is a sign of Inevitable Democratic Victory.

UPDATE: Similar Democratic dominance in the use of YouTube.

Except that many of those MySpace friends are probably under 18.

Not that I'm saying Obama is trying to reach out and touch underage kids, I'm just saying that while many intelligent 16 and 17 year olds approve of Obama, they aren't going to be able to vote for him.
