Political Social Networking

I just read this article in the New York Times about how the Obama campaign has dramatically advanced the use of social networking in politics.  It’s an interesting read.  The article talks about how the Obama campaign hired Chris Hughes, one of the four founders of Facebook to run its online effort.  The article also talks about how the McCain campaign is playing catchup by launching McCainSpace (I wonder if the Facebook/MySpace angle was intentional?).  Anyway, the author didn’t have kind things to say about the McCain campaign’s foray into social networking so I took the bait and went onto JohnMcCain.com and clicked on the "Join McCainSpace" link.  So how surprised was I when I got the following "page load error"


Ouch!  Bad SSL certificate.  That’s embarassing…
