Blogs and politics timeline

David Sifrey of Technocrati has created a timeline of how blogs have influenced politics, from Bill Clinton in 1998

[ Matt Drudge broke a story on his site that the President had an affair with intern Monica Lewinsky, forcing traditional media outlets to stop sitting on the story. Drudge is a personal Web publisher, but by no stretch of the imagination is he a blogger.]

through Trent Lott and Ed Schrock to Dan Rather.

The timeline is in wiki so you can edit and update it yourself.

Dave wants you to add some international blogging stories that have had significant political influence.
So, if you dont want to keep complaining that the blogosphere is US-centered, get to work!
