I missed this earlier this week, but it is one step in the US to recognition of bloggers as journalists of a kind. The Federal Election Commission isn't the final authority, but it is the arbiter for political campaigning where blogging has had huge impact. From a PR perspective, supporters will use blogs not only to talk about candidates but to argue with opponents. That is good. It will add to the noise but there is a chance that it might also add to understanding.
