Putting The People Back In Politics

Kevin of The Sleepy Sage has a good piece on why having bloggers on the political conventions is an important thing, and the average journalist's reaction to them.

If participation in democracy is a good thing, then shouldn't parts of the political process be open to more people? Shouldn't active participation in our democracy be encouraged?

I would never presume to say that bloggers will override conventional journalists, but blogs are a tool to be used in some situations for some people. I'm all for having extra tools to use.

EDIT: The Grand Ol' Elephants are also inviting some bloggers to their big party next month. I didn't get invited to this one either. Geez, what does a guy need to do to get on the 'In-List' ya know?
