According to the EchoDitto website: [2]

We do this work because we care. Harnessed correctly, the Internet can enliven debate and invigorate ordinary Americans to reengage in the political process.
We use the internet, online technology, and web-based tools to fundraise, organize, and build vibrant online progressive communities.
Primarily, we're interested in working with you if you're interested in taking risks and creating a stir. We enjoy the process of fleshing out vague concepts and general ideas. The excitement is always in the details, and it's in untested hypotheses.

John McCain: U.S. presidential election, 2008

According to an August 25, 2006, message on the EchoDitto Blog posted by Harish Rao:

Nicco Mele's August 24, 2006, post "about his support for Senator John McCain has caused quite a lot of ruckus. We at EchoDitto disagree with his decision. While Nicco does not work for Senator McCain, his support for a possible McCain candidacy runs contrary to many of our core beliefs at EchoDitto.
"As a firm, EchoDitto is committed to progressive campaigns and organizations. We started in the political space and have been privileged to work with a lot of progressive candidates and campaigns as well as clients in the non-profit and corporate spaces. We're proud of the work we've done over the past three years with our partners, and we look forward to all the great work ahead.
"Everyone in this world has to follow their own heart. Nicco has agreed to, effective immediately, take a leave of absence from our company. We hope he takes some time to re-consider his position. I am assuming Nicco's responsibilities for the duration of his leave of absence."
