MORE ECCODITTO. GFR makes some good points below regarding EccoDitto, the company's founder, and John McCain. That said, I don't think my non-Mele friends at the firm would forgive me if I didn't draw attention to this post on the company's blog from Chief Operating Officer Harish Rao:
Nicco's recent post about his support for Senator John McCain has caused quite a lot of ruckus. We at EchoDitto disagree with his decision. While Nicco does not work for Senator McCain, his support for a possible McCain candidacy runs contrary to many of our core beliefs at EchoDitto. . . .
Everyone in this world has to follow their own heart. Nicco has agreed to, effective immediately, take a leave of absence from our company. We hope he takes some time to re-consider his position. I am assuming Nicco's responsibilities for the duration of his leave of absence.
That said, the Dean/McCain nexus is an interesting one. They have similar images as hard-charging straight-talkers and, in a sense, come out of similar reformist political traditions. On the other hand, obviously, Dean's primary campaign in 2003-04 became the main focus for skepticism about the Iraq War while McCain is probably the most hawkish major politician in America.
