Hillary's Blog Goes Live

Update: I'm the guest poster at Hillary's blog today. If you follow my link, you'll see I've chronicled her election bid since 2000. I haven't yet decided whom I'm supporting to ultimately get the nomination. But I'm heartily endorsing her seeking it.


Hillary Clinton's blog went live today. Some of you may remember that she asked for submissions to become the first guest poster. More than 10,000 entries were received. The winner with the first post is Kelly G. Here's her entry.

Imagine my surprise when Peter Daou called me today to say my submitted post will be up tomorrow! Out of 10,000 plus submissions, I'm pretty amazed. So don't forget to go on over (when you're not checking out my live-blogging of the Scooter Libby closings at Huffington Post or reading what Big Tent and/or TChris have to say here.)

As I'm sitting in my hotel room in D.C. tonight, which is right across from a fire station with huge sirens going off every half hour or so as the firetrucks respond to the latest emergency, and about to catch up on the news of the day and then watch "24" and "What About Brian", two songs keep resonating through my head: Don Henley's New York Minute .


Lying here in the darkness
I hear the sirens wail

Somebody going to emergency

Somebody's going to jail

If you find somebody to love in this world

You better hang on tooth and nail

The wolf is. always at the door

And the Rolling Stones, You Can't Always Get What You Want

No, You can't always get what you want
You can't always get what you want

But if you try sometime you find

You get what you need

Now we need a lyric for Scooter Libby. Suggestions, anyone?

    I've somehow gotten the impression after lurking for a while that you recognize the Democratic Leadership Council for the neo-con front organization it is.

    Now here you are endorsing Hillary with gusto, as if that's no issue for you.

    Puzzling to me.

    Do you think it probable that State, OVP, and OP were all running their own separate get-Wilson operations with their own separate agendas?

    My reading of it is Cheney had Libby put a bug in Rove and Ari's ears knowing they would run with it while leaving minimal S&S fingerprints. Rove was desperately looking for any help, so of course he jumped on the info. Ari was leaving, so he was a throw-away leaker. Armitage was interested in covering for Powell. He's the enigma to me in this. He might have gotten a shove from Rove (ala Nixon and Zeigler).

    Great job on all of the live blogging and the wonderful commentary throughout. All of you are great on video too. I wish one of the news networks had the good sense to give you guys a show and pay you obscene amounts of money. You guys would rock it.

    Particularly after the Edwards kerfluffle, does anyone think that any of the Presidential candidates (D or R) are going to have anything like a real blog, with freewheeling commentary and at least semi-open comments?  I can't see it happening.

    The link embedded in this sentence is no good: "I'm the guest poster at Hillary's blog today."
