As a post-internet cultural theorist who teaches the subject at a large research university I'd say that submitting this idea to a millennial political consultant would confirm what I've said here, Philippe: older politicos won't get this; those who understand the internet *will*
1/ Someday (and the Republican Party, sadly, is *much* closer to this day than is the Democratic Party) people paid a lot of money to be political consultants will start seriously trying to understand how the internet works rather than bemusedly waving it all away and then losing
2/ Were I a paid political consultant (which I'm not and don't want to be) I'd consider it my duty to educate my client on where the internet will be at in 2020 and 2025 rather than dragging them kicking/screaming into an understanding of the internet that is most definitely 2004
