The First Blogging President
Former Virginia Gov. Jim Gilmore promised today that he would start a White House blog if elected president in 2008. “I would have a blog,” he said during a meeting with conservative bloggers at The Heritage Foundation. “We’ll do a blog for the White House.”
Gilmore’s proclamation makes him the first Republican, and possibly the first candidate, to support the idea of a White House blog. Gilmore said he is a strong advocate for communicating on the Internet because it allows individuals to bypass the mainstream media.
The current White House communications staff has ramped up its outreach to bloggers under the direction of Press Secretary Tony Snow and Internet Director David Almacy. Snow has held two conference calls with bloggers and reads blogs daily. Gilmore, apparently, wants to take blogging to a new level.

Progress, innovation, empowerment — these are the touchstones by which Jim Gilmore has governed since the very moment he put his hand on the Bible and swore the Oath of Office. The result of this leadership has been a strong and dynamic Virginia that even under the pressure of a slowing national economy is growing and leading and advancing into the 21st century.
