In case you still doubt the impact blogs will have on the upcoming Presidential race, listen to Mike Arrington of TechCrunch being interviewed yesterday on ABC TV News. TechCrunch had just announced its new site where readers will endorse a candidate. Hey, maybe Arrington will run for VP with Mike Bloomberg.
So far, Barack Obama, John McCain, John Edwards, Mitt Romney and Mike Gravel have been interviewed in TechCrunch podcasts about their views on issues important to the tech community.
TechCrunch will endorse one candidate from each the Democratic and Republican party based on the popular results of reader voting open from Tuesday, December 18 through midnight pst Friday, January 18. Watch the interview after the jump. The reporter seems incredulous. Video after the jump.
