Newsmakers

Here’s a fun Friday exercise. See who is newsmaker on The Huffington Posts’s newstracker.

The tracker counts the number of times a person has been mentioned online in the last week. And since you can plug in more than one name to the tracker, it offers a nice comparison between all the names we know.

Hillary Clinton trounced Chuck Schumer, who is slacking on his Sunday morning press conferences.

Even having personal campaign material “stolen” didn’t help Rudy Giuliani to beat John McCain.

Possible presidential candidate Mike Bloomberg is blown out of the water by super-stealthy 2008 candidate, San Francisco Mayor Gavin Newsom.

After the jump…
Eliot Spitzer vs. Andrew Cuomo
Eliot Spitzer vs. Arnold Schwarzenegger
Mike Bloomberg vs. Gavin Newsom
and a few more.

What match-ups can you come up with?

Fred Dicker rules Albany, but the week belongs to some guy named Ben Smith.

And I’m in a low-octane deadheat with colleague Jason Horowitz.
