Brazile: Democratic Party must acknowledge power of bloggers

In a column in today's edition of Roll Call, Democratic Party insider and former Bill Clinton advisor Donna Brazile urged Democrats to acknowledge the power and influence of bloggers.

While expressing her irritation with harsh criticism of "dinosaur" Democrats from some segments of the blogosphere, Brazile credits younger Dems for "figuring out how to use the Internet" and for the net-roots effect on recent events, particularly the much-publicized primary defeat of Joe Lieberman at the hands of blog darling Ned Lamont.

Brazile argues that the Democratic establishment can no longer afford to ignore, vilify or marginalize the blogging community as she promotes a new approach to welcoming it into the "party of inclusion."
