"A quote from the post: 'Here at Clark HQ, we're using a lot of open source technology. When our IT team was setting up computers for everyone, a good majority of them outfitted with OpenOffice and Mozilla. We're also using Thunderbird as our main mail client and Squirrelmail for the travel team. Those who refuse to give up their copies of Outlook are required to surrender their laptops for examination before being allowed to plug them into the office network.' Sounds like there is a pretty good possibility that this could be the first presidential candidate to use Mozilla!"

The weblog entry was made by Cameron Barret (of CamWorld fame), who is the Blog Strategy Guy for the Clark campaign. Note that the post never explicitly states that Clark uses Mozilla.

There's a problem. Most of the areas where I disagree with the Shrub, I disagree with his Dem Rivals even more. I Didn't vote for either of the idiots that the major partys nominated in 2000, opting for the Libertarian. The Shrub had a massive lead in my state so I didn't have to worry about tipping the states electorial vote to anyone. If I had been forced to pick one of the majors in a close race, then the Gorebot was the "Evil of the two lessers", and I would have punched a chad out by the shrub's name. The upcomming election I'll be voting diferently. I'll be voting for the Shrub!! Why? The Libertarians aren't going to win, so I'm going for amusement. I Find the Bush Bashers who spam every forum with thier hatred to be endlessly amusing. Looking at the Dem field they will again have the Evil of the two lessers, so I'll take the less evil lesser and the amusement for another 4 years. Wonder if we can get Jeb in 2008 to continue the fun?
