We had an interesting, if inconclusive discussion on Slugger recently about the merits (or otherwise) blogging. In the US, all such pretense that bloggers are simply amateur ‘no marks’ have long since been left behind. So much so that Danny Finklestein has named ten bloggers he is convinced will be crucial to the success of Hillary Clinton’s run for the Whitehouse, next year.
