The US Presidential race, still far far away, is already heating up on the net with presidential hopefuls from all parties announcing their candidacy. How to keep track of all the action? One cool new tool is the hilariously named Wannabepresidents.com, a blog aggregator that pulls in content from all of the official blogs of the various candidates’ websites, including third party ones. It’s a nice way to get a quick snapshot of what the various pretenders to the crown are talking about, on a well formatted web page.
It promises to be an increasingly crowded field. Folks will likely be turning to the web in record numbers to try and make sense of it all, and decide which candidate matches their values and positions. Hopefully we’ll see more online tools like this one that increase the political signal-to-noise ratio.
I wonder how the third party candidates feel about their column appearing in dull gray, as if they are barely there. I suppose it could be worse, like pink.

oooh, excellent point about the dull gray. i think we should change the gray to white.
thanks for the tip, and thanks for blogging about wannabepresidents.
