How much effort are the Democratic candidates putting into blogger outreach?

Jerome Armstrong of Mydd did a review of the effort the 2008 Democratic candidates are putting into outreach toward the netroots last week. He finds that their effort varies and concludes that it's almost as if the candidate websites are afraid of associating with the netroots too closely. Surprisingly, Obama seems to be the candidate that is doing the least to reach out to Democratic-leaning blogs. Armstrong also writes that he has been following the French elections a bit, and that he is impressed with the amount of outreach being done by the Royal campaign. While Royal's outreach might be impressive, Armstrong does not speak French. Neither do I, so no further comment on that issue for now. (Via TechPresident)
