Joe Trippi, Dean's campaign manager and the amazing Internet guru, who transformed Dean's campaign from a long shot to an Internet phenomenon has been replaced. Roy Neel, a longtime aide to former Vice President Al Gore will be Dean's new campaign manager.
Discussing this mater, I (Alexis Rice) was quoted in a CNET News.com article about the "fall" of the Dean campaign and I stated:
Don't measure the future of Internet-based campaigning only by whether Dean wins the Democratic nomination or not, Rice cautions. "Nobody had heard of Dean a year ago," she said. "The media caught on to Dean because of his use of the Internet...For that reason, candidates will look at the Dean model, especially on campaign fund raising."
