Conventional or contemplative?

Official bloggers of the Democratic National Convention will set some sort of precedent in style and tone for this mode of political speech.

Optimism is constructive, but as the self-organizing battalions of polarized blogs might suggest, blogs do lend themselves to short, sharp jabs, bilious fumes and the like.

Perhaps the large thing will turn out to be whether convention blogging offers some glimmer of a contemplative dimension which has not proven to be broadcast media's strong suit, no matter how fair and balanced.
