Has Obama's Internet Fundraising Success Changed Politics?

I loved HIllary will all my heart but she lost in the caucus states because Obama's people were more organized and had more cash on hand. Is the blogosphere going to determine presidents from now on? What do you think?

Another Hillary fan here. Love that she's the nominee for Secretary of State but still disappointed that she was not the Vice Presidential nominee. I do think that Obama's internet fundraising broke new ground. Until Obama, politicians largely ignored the new technologies available to them and by using the internet, Obama got an entirely new generation passionately involved in the process. However, I do believe that Obama is a very charismatic individual who when he speaks can make people have hope and belief in him. He's a rare individual and I think that politicians will now start to take advantage of the internet to fundraise but I think that it will be the rare individual who will be able to use it to such advantage.
