According to MyDD: Clinton will speak tomorrow, er, today! at Noon EDT (that's 9 a.m. for all of us on the "left coast"): It will be covered by all the cable news networks. CNN will start their coverage at 11 a.m. EDT.
She will be speaking at 12pm EDT at the National Building Museum, located at 401 F Street, NW, Washington, D.C.
Maggie Williams sent out this email today: Hillary Clinton's web site will be covering the speech live (in case anybody wants to bug out of the media's version of "I come to praise Hillary, not to bury her.").
There is also a "Thank You" card campaign underway, but I haven't seen any publicity of this outside of Taylor Marsh:
We are trying to get a "Thank you card campaign" started. We want to flood Senator Clinton's DC office with thank you cards. On the front of the envelope we are writing "WE ARE ONE OF 18 MILLION" and we are asking her to take it to Denver. We want to reach as many supporters as possible so it can be effective. THE ADDRESS:
First and foremost: To Hillary - a terrific woman, feminist, Senator from New York, leader, mother, wife, role-model, and 2008 Democratic Presidential candidate. We already know you're the best! But we also want you to know that when you showed the world your "true colors" we felt comfortable and safe in showing our true colors, too. It makes us stronger as human beings and more beautiful in our unique and complex individualities.
Thank you, Hillary!
Second: To all of Hillary's supporters - who worked our hearts out phone-banking, knocking on doors, blogging, broadcasting (Taylor Marsh), fundraising, talking, debating, stuffing enveloped, distributing flyers, letter-writing, yelling at MSNBC "pundits", and every other action we have taken on behalf of Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton.
(BELOW THE JUMP)
Finally: In honor of Gay Pride Week (which I noted in an earlier blog, but which got screwed-up when it was published):
HILLARY, STANDING UP FOR ALL AMERICANS STILL...
As we begin Gay Pride Month, I join the LGBT community in celebrating an historic year in which our country continues to make progress towards the fair and equal treatment of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. Still, we have so much work to do. I look forward to working with the LGBT community to make sure that all Americans in committed relationships have equal benefits and that nothing stands in the way of loving couples who want to adopt children in need. We need to expand our federal hate crimes legislation and pass a fully-inclusive Employment Non-Discrimination Act. And finally, we need to put an end to the failed policy of Don't Ask, Don't Tell. Courage, honor, patriotism and sacrifice - the traits that define our men and women in uniform - have nothing to do with sexual orientation.
Hillary - You Showed Us Your 'True Colors' "Like A Rainbow...
Share your thoughts about Hillary, the campaign, her decision to "suspend" her campaign, your personal stories. ONE RULE: No trolls, no foul language, no sexist or racist crap of any kind! I will be moderating...
Lest anybody forget the other part of tonight's story, there were actually two primaries that occurred. You might have heard about them a few days ago (maybe as recently as Sunday, or yesterday). But they certainly got blown off by most of the media tonight (CNN being the exception). I guess in the rush to crown Barack Obama as the Democratic Party nominee (see my earlier post), superdelegates forgot their obligation to let the voters speak and the media forgot (oh, hell, why don't we just say it?) abandoned journalistic integrity in favor of "thrills".
