A former U.S. Senator from Colorado is turning to the Internet to win support for a possible presidential campaign. Gary Hart has started up a blog -- otherwise known as an Internet journal -- to share ideas with readers and help him determine whether he will run for president.
Hart says the Internet is the most important new medium to help increase people's involvement in national politics and share their thoughts on national policies that will shape the nation's future.
One reader asked Hart why he is a Democrat. He says he answered that the Democratic Party -- at its best -- is the party of hope. But he adds that the Democratic Party cannot be the party of hope as long as its leaders think only about raising money.
The 66-year-old Hart is likely to be among at least 10 Democrats seeking the nomination if he decides to run for president.
