Shumlin takes to the video

If you want a preview of the sort of arguments Peter Shumlin is going to make as he launches his campaign as one of at least five Democrats running for governor next week, he has a series of videos that appear bound for his campaign Web site. They popped up this morning from my Google alerts.

You can see them here: http://www.vimeo.com/album/144505

All of them feature him sitting in front of a fireplace talking about energy, state budget, same-sex marriage, agriculture, health care and his own business. He is claiming to be the leader Vermont needs. He claims that for the last eight years we've been "plodding along."

The pre-release of these videos is nothing less than a catastrophe for Shumlin. Beside the fact that they are terrible and make him look older than Bill Clinton from a side angle, the fact that his campaign operations team didn't think to protect them is astonishing. Haven't they heard of google? A stumble for this supposedly experienced campaigner. There's a lot I'd expect Shumlin to get wrong along the way, but his campaign launch was not on my list.
