The Campaign on the Web

By their Web sites ye shall know them. The presidential candidates have staked their places on the Web to raise money, to distribute speeches and position papers, and to show off their cybersavvy. Some sites are better than others. Here's a quick guide.




Bradley pitches himself as a reformer disdainful of big money. The site even offers a copy of his personal financial disclosure statement. However, you'll soon discover that clicking around the site causes an unsolicited "Make a Contribution" box to pop up repeatedly on your screen.

Bottom line: Large, confident, and dull


Lest anyone associate Gore with Bill Clinton's sex life, two of the departments you can click to from any page are " The Gore Family" and " Tipper Gore." And while other sites gloss over the legal rules for giving money, this contribution form requires donors to check boxes stating, "I am not a foreign national who lacks permanent resident status in the United States" and "The funds I am contributing are my own personal funds and not those of another."

Bottom line: Cybersprawl
