McJoan recently spent a day with the Darcy Burner campaign, and writes about it over on Daily Kos.
It’s a smart campaign, and an innovative one. […] Darcy is willing to take quite a few risks in this campaign, but they’re strategic ones. As a “geek” and a former product manager, Darcy has a systems-based approach to the problem of taking on a popular incumbent. It’s led to much more unconventional campaign than the one she ran in 2006, partly because she has a higher degree of independence this time around. That’s largely because of the financial support she gets from the netroots. She doesn’t have to go to the telco lobby, or the pharmaceutical lobby, or the insurance lobby–she doesn’t have to necessarily dance to the DCCC’s tune this time around.
And you can trust Joan on this, because she’s credible.
