What if there was a news aggregator specifically geared to update you on the later and most current politics and political news? - A site like automated news aggregator Techmeme, only tailored to the most current and important in national and local US politics and political news. That's the basic premise of a company called Influentials Network, which is launching a political niche news aggregator sites for casual to professional followers of political news.

An editorial staff figures out hundreds to thousands of sources delivered through a specialized algorithmic platform that determines semantic definitions of quality, relevance, and other information.

The site also has some social and gaming features. You can connect directly with your Facebook friends and share the daily political news. You can also compete in a daily online debate and invite your FB friends to vote for your argument Stories can also be flagged as inappropriate and removed from the site.

Influentials Network is the single aggregation source for anyone who want the most important and relevant political news in one, always-updating website. It is a vertical aggregator built for professionals, businesspeople and the political junkies - audiences who need more than just the top stories on a given day.

A good sign for the Washington, DC-based company is that it has garnered more than 5,000 Facebook fans and Twitter followers in about 30 days solely on word of mouth and other forms of grassroots marketing.

Like Techmeme the founders of Influentials Network are hoping the site becomes a sort of watering hole for the political class, and a status symbol for political bloggers and writers.

Influentials Network big challenge will be in attracting and engaging long-term users, even Techmeme's sister political news aggregator has seen limited success than its tech-focused counterpart.
