During her closing campaign rally in New Hampshire, Hillary Clinton spoke of the need for greater government transparency, fully embracing the Internet and blogging.
“I want to put everything on the Internet! I want you to see the budget of every agency. I want you to track everything that goes on in your government — you pay for it, you should know about it!” she said.
And of blogging?
“We should even have a government blogging team where people in the agencies are constantly telling all of you, the taxpayers, the citizens of America, everything that’s going on so that you have up-to-the-minute information about what your government is doing, so that you too can be informed, and hold the government accountable.”
I’m not an American citizen, but I’m not sure that I’d want the British Government to be “constantly” blogging about what’s going on. Transparency is one thing, but blogging isn’t a catchall solution to… well, most things.
Nice bit of lingo, though. Apparently, she’s also now embracing Facebook.
