Over at the John Edwards Blog, Mickeleh gives his take on the importance of Scoble's coverage. Now, a quick look-around does not tell me just who Mickeleh is and that would be helpful, but I find it interesting that the site is apparently posting some analysis of what's going on rather than the boosterism I'm finding on so many other political sites.
Mickeleh, it seems to me, has written a pretty good piece, with a clear understanding of social media as a toolset that allows transparency. But, I think he or she misses a very key point about Scoble's being there. Robert's most significant contribution to blogging is that he taught the rest of us how to put a human face on corporate blogging.
One thing most voters in the world would agree upon is that we could use more human faces on the suits who run for office. So far Edwards is out in front in trying to attempt this. He is not yet there. If he does achieve the sort of transparency that Scoble has proven is possible to achieve, then I believe he will be our next president.
That is, of course, if we voters like what we see.
