From Opinionjournal.com's Daily Political Diary:
"Zack Exley, the guru who ran John Kerry's web efforts, has just given a sharp assessment of why his man's online campaign fell short this election year. Speaking last week at a Harvard symposium on politics and the Internet, Mr. Exley said that Democratic ranks were flush with goatee-chinned web designers who didn't actually deliver votes. "The difference between our approach and the Republicans is that we were more interested in just putting cool software up. Republicans are beating us at what used to be our game: the grassroots approach. That's real politics," he said. "Basically [the Democrats] don't trust the people."
