p2p-Politics.org is a cool new site that lists video ads supporting Kerry, Bush and Nader. Although the site was launched by known Kerry supporters and currently there are only ads from the Kerry campaign and some of MoveOn.org's Bush in 30 Seconds ads, there is a tab for Bush and Nader and are soliciting ads from them. They also ask people to submit their own ads. The idea is that the site would be a non-partisan site that allows you to view ads of the candidates and email links to the ads to friends. The ads are hosted by the Internet Archive and licensed under a Creative Commons license. The "p2p" here stands for people-to-people or peer-to-peer but is not p2p as in the file sharing protocol. This site is a volunteer effort by J Christopher Garcia and Aaron Swartz, "with some ideas by Lawrence Lessig" and support from the Internet Archive.

Nice... shame they don't syndicate the site.

The real shame is that they don't have any ads for libertarian Michael Badnarik on there. He has been far more effective at ballor access to date than has Ralph Nader.

There's quite a bit of analysis out there indicating that Michael Badnarik is more significant as a potential "spoiler" for President Bush than Ralph Nader is for John Kerry.
