I will just quote Kos for what he is looking for:
The concept is simple: to have ground-level correspondents covering political events in their neck of the woods. As such, I’m looking for politically astute individuals that can provide the occassional report on political ongoings in their states.
I am looking for writers from across the political spectrum — people who can steer clear of empty rhetoric and focus on the “Inside Baseball” aspect of politics. Ideological diversity is meant to provide diverse interpretations of certain events, not to spur pissing matches between ideological foes. This site is intended to be cerebral, not emotional.
Translation- He is looking for volunteers who will be able to report locally, and he is looking for a diverse group of writers. If you have not visited the Daily Kos yet, you do not understand how convinced I am that this will turn out to be a historic and wildly successful endeavor.
