As a part of The New Hampshire Project, BSB chief (and PB alum) Jerid sat down for a fifteen minute interview with Democratic Presidential candidate Senator Chris Dodd.

It’s an excellent interview by Jerid. Having participated in a Meet The Bloggers event before, I know both how powerful these opportunities can be, and how difficult it can be to interview candidates as a normal citizen.

These kinds of events are tremendously important. So listen, learn, and comment. If candidates notice, they’ll be more likely to participate in the future, and really, the blogosphere is perhaps the most democratic form of media, with low barriers to entry and easy opportunities for readers to participate. So participate! Dodd gets it, and if others notice our influence, they’ll get it too.
