This year's presidential campaign, more than any in history, will play out on a digital battleground - everything from the candidates' own websites to Facebook and Twitter and anything, really, that comes to us byte-by-byte. Digital ads have joined television and radio ads as instruments of political persuasion and propaganda. E-mail is crowding out direct mail in the same way. Even fundraising has moved increasingly online, where campaigns can collect money (in mostly small amounts) nearly as fast as they can ask for it with little in the way of overhead - and no door-to-door solicitation.
