My good friend Emil Franzi, a longtime local political strategist, has said there are four things every successful campaign has to do:
1) Let ’em know you’re running
2) Give ’em a reason to vote for you
3) Give a reason to not vote for the other guy
4) Get Out The Vote (or GOTV)
The candidates, through this Web site, their MySpace pages and outreach like Project White House Happy Hour!, have gotten through the first two stages.
Now it’s time for stage 3. Their new job: Make a comparison piece showing why voters should vote for them instead of one of the mainstream Republican or Democratic candidates.
Candidates can make a blog post, a short video or a campaign brochure.
Republicans are targeting one or more of the following: Romney, McCain, Paul, Giuliani, Huckabee, Hunter or Thompson.
Democrats are targeting one or more of the following: Clinton, Obama, Edwards, Gravel or Kucinich.
