When I heard Democratic presidential candidate front-runner Howard Dean would be guest blogging for Lawrence Lessig, I was hoping he'd say something interesting. People have raised some worthwhile points in the discussion section of Lessig's fora, and it would be refreshing to hear candid responses to those issues.
But there aren't any. He's as boring and uninspired in a blog as I'd expect him to be at a town hall meeting, and half the posts come from his staffers (if not all of them). What did I expect? Perhaps a personal feel to these people we "elect" to power is too much to ask.
The whole guest-blogging episode seems a little sleazy anyways. Dean's campaign already has its own blog. I wonder what Lessig thinks of Dean's performance.
