BossKitty commented as the candidates sp0ke. See the BLOG.
Kucinich is great. I love this guy.
Kucinich, great things come in small packages. Such a forcefully pro-gay leprechaun, this guy is great – so sad he does not have the political machine to get himself elected. His idealism is contagious but not electable. We need Kucinich to continue speaking out whether he is electable or not.
Edwards fights for ordinary people. He is honest about his discomfort with G&L issues. (We know what that means). Because he admits his feelings honestly, I am comfortable with his leadership. I don’t think he would betray his promises, he still has to answer to Elizabeth.
Everyone knows what the issues are, everyone has an idea of the world they want to live in, Obama has the tools we need to take us there.
Obama is a statesman in the making. The art of positive thinking and a solid intellect will make him the statesman this country has needed for 8 years. He appears to see both sides of each coin and find the common ground. This country will not elect another lying radical. I still have not made my choice, but, at least I still have a voice …
Very interesting venue – no Republicans accepted the invitation …

Democrats spar at blog gathering
Seven of the Democratic candidates for US president have fielded questions from more than 1,000 political bloggers at an annual convention in Chicago. Correspondents say the candidates’ presence reflects the growing influence of such bloggers, seen as a key resource by candidates. The candidates’ appearance at the YearlyKos Convention follows a presidential debate on YouTube in late July, when they answered questions posed solely via online videos. Senator Joe Biden was the only candidate not to attend.

Blogger Event Draws Democrats
Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton refused Saturday to forsake campaign donations from lobbyists, turning aside challenges from her two main rivals with a rare defense of the special interest industry.
Notice that Democrats are at least giving the appearance of communicating with ‘the people’ who they want to lead. Notice the Republicans are less enthusiastic about hearing the thoughts of the people they want to subject to Theocratic suppression. I give Ron Paul the ‘brass orbs’ to stand against the neocon line and be the last great hope for what used to be the party of Lincoln.

Thanks to Suzie-Q, Bluebloggin has been tagged for the Power of Schmooze Award. We are very honored.
Power of Schmooze Award was created by two bloggers Mike of Things by Mike and Danielle of Pink Review. Many who received this award have already received the “Thinking Blogger Award”
Schmoozing is the natural ability “to converse casually, especially in order to gain an advantage or make a social connection.” Good schmoozers effortlessly weave their way in and out of the blogosphere, leaving friendly trails and smiles, happily making new friends along the way. They don’t limit their visits to only the rich and successful, but spend some time to say hello to new blogs as well.
Here are our 5 recipients of the Power of Schmooze Award:
Chen Zhen’s Chamber: This is a very thoughtful and well written blog. Chen has a way of viewing topics from angles that most of us don’t bother with. Also Chen is truly all inclusive he came up with a Political Bloggers Alliance with the goal of creating an open conversation with all political ideologies.
Clapso: This blog takes on topics with a critical eye. His style is op-ed usually with visually splashed in, nice touch to round out his points. Oh and did I mention there is plenty of criticism to go around.
From The Left: Those of you who are familiar with Christopher know that he is on top of all the news and on point. Christopher’s post no BS post. They’re right to the point and he is more than happy to share his opinions with you. His blog reflects his belief in justice and freedom. He also has a very strong voice for civil rights issues.
Liberally Mirth: A very well researched blog with topics covering a wide spectrum. Mirth and D-day do a great job everyday of posting national and world information with their opinions mixed in. On Sundays they post Community Speaks when they introduce their readers to a new blog, which I think is a great idea.
Some Notes On Living: ProudProgessive covers interesting with versatile topics that are well researched. ProudProgessive is passionate on politics and social issues. This is a blog that is strong on spirit, progressive values and with a lot to tell you. You will definitely enjoy and learn something in this blog.
Now these Schmoozers have to pass the award along to five more people that have shown their ability to enter into the huge online conversation that is the “blogosphere”.
