Wanted: CMS for a Political Campaign

Maybe this is going to be a turning point for politics and technology. This weekend, an inquiry was made on the cms mailing list:

we need to set up a website for our candidate with a CMS that will be used by a variety of staffers to upload content that will then be approved by a small set of senior people. We’re under terrific time pressure to get this thing up and running …

Now, I don’t really expect a more personal channel to the candidate. It is clear that content will be vetted by senior advisors before going live. But I think that many candidates just don’t have a good handle on technology. And first hand knowledge can only help.
