Well He's No Hillary

McCain will be hosting an Exchange of Ideas Forum on Thursday March 8th. For those who cannot attend, this event will also be available live via webcast. A concept that has been very successful for Hillary Clinton. Unlike Hillary the McCain webcast will come at a price, $100 for an E-Ticket that will allow you to log in and attend virtually.

I have mixed feelings about this strategy. First I have to assume that the only reason to do a webcast is to attract the younger tech savvy crowd. A demographics that is used to downloading movies, music and tv shows for free. I count myself among that same candidate and I would never pay $100 to watch some webcast that I know will most likely appear a few days later on YouTube. Someone unsure about McCain is definetly not going to pay $100 to watch the webcast.

My advice to the campaign would be to hold a free Webcast invite everyone to come and listen to McCain speak and end the night with an invitation to donate $100 to the campaign. I guess well see how it goes.
