Blogger Roundtable With John Edwards

I just returned from a blogger roundtable (much as we had with President Clinton last month)with Sen. John Edwards. About 15 Colorado bloggers attended the get-together at the downtown Denver Hyatt Hotel.

In a nutshell, color me impressed with him and his ideas. It was all q&a, no speeches, for about 45 minutes. Everything was on the record.

Pictures and details of the conversation to follow later this afternoon tonight. Also check out the Colorado blogs on the right side of TalkLeft, many were there and will be writing about the event.

A big thanks to Bobby Clark of Progress Now Action for putting this together.

Update: Other bloggers writing on the event:

We had a long discussion about the torture bill and whether torture is ever justified. TBTH summarizes very well. I'll add more later tonight after I get back from the forum on Colorado's Amendment 44 to legalize adult possession of up to one ounce of marijuana.

    You either had minority bloggers there, or bloggers who did not wear sweaters to this one.
