Very Active Bill Moyers for President Blog?

Over at Irregular Times, they're giving coverage to a wide range of bloggers who are writing about the potential for a campaign of Bill Moyers for President. That includes this blog, which is linked to as John Nichols, the author of The Genius of Impeachment, writing over at The Nation magazine, says,

"Despite the fact that the journalist and author who has become in many senses the moral voice of the nation did not leap at the opportunity to wade into the swirling political waters of this turbulent moment, the columns sparked an enthusiastic response — hundreds of emails, several websites and a busy Draft Bill Moyers for President weblog"

Gosh, John. We haven't really been that busy. But, thanks anyway. We're still waiting for that enthusiasm to come our way, that campaign without a candidate. Anyone? Anyone?

Bill Moyers For President Spreads Across the Web!

The movement to ask Bill Moyers to run for President in 2008 is spreading across the web this week. Jim over at Irregular Times has a good article about the many people writing in favor of Bill Moyers for President. He fails, though, to mention the blog entry by Carlos over at Jesus Politics, which links back to this very site.

It bugs me a little bit, however, that so many of the sites under the Google search for Bill Moyers for President are merely republishings of the articles written by Molly Ivins and Ralph Nader saying that they'd like to see Bill Moyers runn for President. Good for those two for writing the articles, but we would all be better served if the diversity of writings on the subject were reflected in the search. There are a lot of people interested in the Bill Moyers for President concept, after all.

Democracy is not reflected only in the writings of people who get published in big name newspapers. Democracy is made by us all.
