Did you know the Dole-Kemp '96 website is still up?

http://www.dolekemp96.org/main.htm

Hell, it's just 16 years and Kemp has been dead only 3 of those years.

Discovered this on Daily Kos:

10. Remember Kemp was the young "proven" guy in case Dole died in office

seems oddly tragically funny to think Kemp is dead and Dole is still going Viagra strong.

11. "This Web Site is Presented for Educational Purposes by 4President.org"

http://www.4president.org/

Much more there than just an archived version of the Dole-Kemp site.

16. That is unusual, at least in recent campaigns.

And they used it in two cycles. Shame it didn't work for them in '80.

12. This press release makes me laugh/cry a little:

October 7, 1996
DEBATE MENTION OF WEB SITE CAUSES FLOOD OF VISITORS
Site Receives More Than 762,000 Hits in Single Four-Hour Period Today

Following Bob Dole's mention of his campaign Web site address in his closing remarks last night in Hartford, the site has been deluged by a flood of first-time visitors. In a single four-hour period today, the Dole-Kemp '96 Web site received more than 762,000 "hits" -- the Web standard for measuring traffic on a site. The total hits on the site for today alone is expected to pass the 2 million mark.

The Dole-Kemp '96 Web site is the first political Web site to individually-customize itself for each user's interests, home state, and last visit.

When users first visit the site, they are given the option of setting up a custom Dole Web page. Each custom page contains a personal tool bar that welcomes the user by name, alerts them to an electronic "In Box" containing any new press releases or other campaign materials posted since their last visit, directs them to briefing papers on issues in which they expressed interest, and offers a home-state icon for local information about the Clinton record and the Dole agenda in that state.

Unlike other political Web sites, the Dole campaign also offers users a mechanism to give feedback to the campaign on policy positions. Each briefing paper is an interactive document that lets users tell the campaign what priority they think a Dole administration should give the initiative.

An Interactive section on the site includes options for users to:

Create custom Dole campaign buttons.
Download official Dole for President computer "wallpaper."
Design and mail their own e-mail postcards to friends.
Make a personalized Dole for President campaign poster.
Test their knowledge with Dole trivia questions and crossword puzzles.
Review state issues and where Dole has visited through interactive maps.

17. Look at the very bottom of the page.

This Web Site is Presented for Educational Purposes by http://4President.org
They have a bunch of old presidential websites on line and campaign materials from pre-www campaigns.
