I was looking around the YearlyKos Convention website and came across this: YearlyKos Netroots Convention Welcomes Pelosi, Reid, Emanuel, Schumer To Ask The Leaders Forum | YearlyKos Convention: Building a Netroots Nation
Wow! This is a big deal. Democracy! From the description:
YearlyKos Convention organizers announced today that Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, U.S. Rep. Rahm Emanuel, and Sen. Charles E. “Chuck” Schumer will participate in a unique Ask the Leaders Forum to be held August 4 in Chicago.
The event—much like the YearlyKos Presidential Leadership Forum that will be held later that afternoon—empowers citizens to engage America’s current Senate and House leadership in substantive discussion about hot topics such as Iraq.
I will have some exciting panel announcements very soon.
