Candidates:Who is the hippest of them all

I looked at the web sites of the leading contenders in each of the major parties to see who was the hippest in terms of using technology to gather support for their campaigns. In particular, who is reaching out to the younger crowd on their home page. I put them in three categories:

High--very hip
John Edwards (blog; YouTube videos; graphic available for websites; updates for cell phones; presence on MySpace, facebook, flickr and more)

Barack Obama (blog; "network with you friends"; your own profile; presence on YouTube, Flickr, facebook)

Medium--some savvy
John McCain ("McCainSpace", blog)

Hillary Clinton (blog)

Low--clueless
Mitt Romney (sign up for email updates)

Rudy Giuliani (sign up for email updates)
