I just found an article by Anne Krogstad analysing the way the Norwegian politician Kristin Halvorsen used her blog and other web-based media, such as online discussions with citizens, in the election campaign in 2005.

She asks whether this might be generally the case in the success rate of online, participatory campaign strategies.
