If Not Pundits, Then What Chance Do Bloggers Have?

David Hazony at Contentions explains the problem with pundits going into politics:
What makes a pundit successful is the clarity of his views, his eloquence and persuasive power. The magic is not necessarily in his ability to know the right answer, but in the chemistry between his answers and the thinking of his audience. He makes himself sound really smart to enough people.

But this sounds like the classic description of the demagogue.
Of course, that might only apply to politics in Israel. Maybe pundits in the US are better qualified?
Or, maybe not.

There's still plenty of time till the next election though--which blogger would you vote for?
