Who will be the first presidential candidate to link to the competition?

I know it’s still way early, but so far I can’t make out any signs of cross-campaign linking (not among the Democratic contenders, at least).

To me, this is such an obvious thing to do for any 2007 campaign that’s serious about dialogue, conversation, and social media. As a candidate, what you should be saying is:

“Look, here’s me, I’m a candidate. Hopefully, I’ll be your candidate. I’m willing and able to run for office, and here’s what qualifies me. As much as I can, I will provide you, the voter, with the information and the tools you need to find out about me and where I stand on the issues. As a courtesy, I will consistently provide you with links to the other candidates, as I would like you to learn about them and their ideas as well. In fact, I would like to urge you, the citizen, to follow all the campaigns and all the candidates and make up your own mind about who you think is best suited for the job and deserves your vote.”

Oh well…
