Move On Moves In

Seeing this in my inbox this morning, just made me chuckle. I imagine the RNC and the McCain campaign are going to be shaking their fists in the air at the sheer nerve of MoveOn.org for using John McCain’s own words against him! The ad will air on cable and in New Mexico and Iowa.

Super Students

Looks like Deb isnt’ the only Super on the block who’s asking for feedback. The President and Vice President of College Democrats of America, each of whom get a super-delegate vote, are asking for input in a cute new video aimed at the YouTube generation.

100 Years and Then Some

By Tracy Russo The Republican National Committee is in a pickle. You see, they’ve got a presumptive nominee who has said some pretty awful things and they just hate being reminded of that fact.
