i’m not going to pretend like I remember bill clinton playing his sax on arsenio hall.

but I’ve taken enough political science classes (see: crystal’s undergrad major) to know that it was a turning point not only in presidential elections, but also pop culture.

I picture millions of people saying: WHAT? presidents are PEO.PLE? they like TALK SHOWS? weird.

skip to 2008 and not only are presidential candidates people, they’re gossip blog fotter.

Perez hilton’s dishing about Sarah Palin having a pregnant 17-year-old daughter. clinton’s convention speech was mentioned on pop crunch. and edwards’ affair was EVERYWHERE.

isn’t that the kind of news reserved to add a little spunk to boring political web sites like time.com? or cnn?

im just sayin. maybe someone should look in to this whole internet/blog thing.

i think it’s going to be big.

it might even start changing how we elect our next president.

might.
