Now former presidential candidate Tom Vilsack has shown that ‘first mover advantage‘ isn’t all it’s cracked up to be in terms of vlogging an election campaign. Though he can count another first to his credit: the first candidate to throw in the towel on a vlog.
While Barack Obama is too busy admitting to drug use, meeting with communists and quitting smoking to update his vlog, being late to the web video table is just one of the things that can’t seem to hurt his surprisingly bulletproof public image.
Of course, Vilsack blames money and a lack of party support, but I bet he’s kicking himself for being all honest and personable and, well, human on his vlog. Maybe he should have gone with the glossy, over-produced approach favored by Clinton, or employed emotionally manipulative backdrops like Edwards.
