The campaign bus rolls into YouTube

John Edwards may not win the Democratic nomination for president in the 2008 campaign, but his use of online video is being viewed as a tipping point in defining online video as a serious medium ready to content with traditional media.
Edwards pre-announced his candidacy on YouTube before the official launch. That act has almost gotten him more buzz than the actual announcement (which was expected). I think it has gotten him more blogger buzz, but that’s just a guess.
The “webisode” is posted here.
Al Gore invented the Internet; John Edwards invents video as a serious online medium.
If Howard Dean’s was the first Internet presidential political campaign, will Edwards’ be the first to win YouTube?
