New media is definitely playing a big and important role in the 2008 election. Obama is doing a great example of this by having a my-space and face-book page and his music video on Utube. The republican candidate are not showing much involvement in using new media technologies I have seemed to notice. Hillary Clinton does have a video but Obama is definitely doing a better job at reaching out to younger people because of the fact that he is using new media technology.
