"Keeping Obama Plugged In"
CHICAGO: While visiting the Windy City for the Yearly Kos blogapalooza, we stopped by Sen. Barack Obama's headquarters to meet his new media team. It's young, like most of the rest of Obama's jean-wearing, T-shirt clad, mostly casually dressed staff. Joe Rospars, the team's boss, is 26 and directs a staff of more than a dozen. But it's also quite experienced. Rospars was part of Howard Dean's Internet team and served as online director for the Democratic National Committee. If there's one word that describes our site, it would be 'transparent,'" Rospars, who's one of the online political operatives we profiled earlier this year, told us. "There's a lot of stuff going on, and we try to put different hooks out there for folks to latch on."Howie P.S.: Scott Goodstein visited Seattle earlier this year with Jim Dean.
