Right Place for My Space?

That, and other news, in today’s Political Panorama.

A story sure to get attention as campaigns focus on online donations is the impact of MySpace.  With several initiatives, like an online “primary” and candidate profiles, the News Corp. site now plans to help candidates collect online contributions. The Financial Times reports that this “viral fund-raising tool” will allow campaigns to track how much has been pledged to each candidate. But it also raises questions as to whether MySpace will be acting as a “bundler” of contributions, and therefore may be subject to campaign finance laws.   

“Sicko” Politics:
As Barack Obama unveils a health care plan today, the New York Times speculates that “Sicko” could end up influencing the presidential campaigns, putting renewed focus on health care. Vulnerable would be Hillary Clinton, who is praised at the start of the film then chided later as one of the biggest recipients of money from the health care industry.

And Gore reinforced that point over the weekend before 1,300 screaming fans at a recent book signing in New York. He lamented the “trivialities and nonsense” of celebrity gossip in the media — on display ith Lindsay Lohan’s arrest over the weekend.
