  •  Contact the press ASAP! (9+ / 0-)

    maybe they want to coordinate this with the florist?  So that they can do a cute human interest story on it.  I'd contact FLA press too, since that's where the florist is...

    Plus I'd give full details to someone in Pelosi's office.  Maybe they want to have Nancy there when the flowers arrive?  You gotta figure her staff is going to be as excited about this as we are...

    •  I just emailed her staff in addition to calling (10+ / 0-)

      I made sure to mention the possibility of press coverage, as well as how Sen. Boxer donated hers to Walter Reed (I'm sure they would do something similar anyway, but figured I should at least mention it).

      I have no idea how "excited" they were--you never know about some people; they may be pissed at having to deal with this, depending on how busy a schedule they already have planned on Friday...

      •  I am sure they recognize free publicity (9+ / 0-)
        when it is handed to them though.  Plus some of her staff has got to be touched by this.  A spontaeous outpouring of support for their boss?  Plus I bet some of the staff will get to keep flowers too ;)  Wins all the way around...
      •  Don't worry about that (8+ / 0-)

        Not your concern.  This is an online media and traditional media collaboration.  Smart folks should know that this is a beautiful gesture and wonderful opportunity for the Speaker to tell her caucus that when we said we would have their backs for passing HCR, we absolutely meant it now and we'll mean it in November as well.  This is a gauge of enthusiasm and base intensity.  Do not worry for not even one second about any staffer being inconvenienced.'

    •  I'm working on a couple of contacts (8+ / 0-)

      right now. I don't know anyone directly who does PR, but I know people who know people.

      Of course, if anyone else has any contacts in the PR world, please, please, PLEASE feel free to ask them as well.

      If we get multiple knowledgable people, we can split things up.
