U.S. Rep. Jack Kingston, R-Ga., must be the most creative user. He only has a handful of clips, but one stars Ben Stein in a relatively funny quiz-show bit.
The most prolific political YouTuber is House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. She’s posted 58 videos. OK, her staff has posted 58 videos.
“It’s about reaching people in new and innovative ways,” says Jennifer Crider, a Pelosi spokeswoman.
There will be more from the likes of Kingston and Pelosi. And from folks such as Steve Westly and Phil Angelides, who went YouTubular in the Democrat gubernatorial primary.
Think of it: In the course of six months, little YouTube has gone from novelty to marketing machine to political platform.
It’s a double edged sword though…
