Posting a Diary Entry

Daily Kos welcomes blog articles from readers, known as diaries. The Intro section to a diary should be about three paragraphs long, and is required. The body section is optional, as is the poll, which can have 1 to 15 choices. Descriptive tags are also required to help others find your diary by subject; please don't use "cute" tags.

When you're ready, scroll down below the tags and click Save & Preview. You can edit your diary after it's published by clicking Edit Diary. Polls cannot be edited once they are published.

If this is your first time creating a Diary since the Ajax upgrade, before you enter any text below, please press Ctrl-F5 and then hold down the Shift Key and press your browser's Reload button to refresh its cache with the new script files.


  1. One diary daily maximum.
  2. Substantive diaries only. If you don't have at least three solid, original paragraphs, you should probably post a comment in an Open Thread.
  3. No repetitive diaries. Take a moment to ensure your topic hasn't been blogged (you can search for Stories and Diaries that already cover this topic), though fresh original analysis is always welcome.
  4. Use the "Body" textbox if your diary entry is longer than three paragraphs.
  5. Any images in your posts must be hosted by an approved image hosting service (one of: imageshack.us, photobucket.com, flickr.com, smugmug.com, allyoucanupload.com, picturetrail.com, mac.com, webshots.com, editgrid.com).
  6. Copying and pasting entire copyrighted works is prohibited. If you do quote something, keep it brief, always provide a link to the original source, and use the <blockquote> tags to clearly identify the quoted material. Violating this rule is grounds for immediate banning.
  7. Be civil. Do not "call out" other users by name in diary titles. Do not use profanity in diary titles. Don't write diaries whose main purpose is to deliberately inflame.

Please begin with an informative title:

Crossposted on DraftKleeb.com:

Here's hoping your holidays were as good as mine! (I'm sporting a new leather jacket and a book about political blogging!) And don't worry, we are just as committed to Drafting Scott Kleeb into the 2008 Nebraska Senate Race. In fact, I think we are even more committed.


You must enter an Intro for your Diary Entry between 300 and 1150 characters long (that's approximately 50-175 words without any html or formatting markup).

As the new year begins I feel it is imperative that we begin to lay the ground work for the potential Scott Kleeb for Senate campaign. Recent interviews on local Fox outlets have shed light on what the future holds for the Democratic candidates in Nebraska.

It appears Tony Raimondo will be waiting "two weeks" for his decision and Scott will decide sometime this month according to recent reports.

The Draft Kleeb narrative from the beginning has been one of empowerment for the state of Nebraska. Something is terribly wrong when we feel our leaders are not representing our best interests. At a local, state, and federal level the people of Nebraska are demanding more from their elected officials but are too often choosing between the lesser of two evils. It is time to put a stop to that and revive Democracy in the state of Nebraska.

I can not do that without your help!

So many of you have already contributed your time, money, etc... to this cause and I want to begin by thanking you. As Scott said a few weeks ago, "This is our choice - and a choice we have to make together." This has truely been your campaign, and we should be proud of what we have accomplished. We are so close to achieving our goal - I feel it in my gut that change is just around the corner in our great state.

Let me give you a run down of what Draft Kleeb has accomplished this past year:

98 people have pledged...
...2,320 hours (290+ working days)
...$19,170.01 to date
Not to mention compiling an extensive issues page, a Scott Kleeb bio section, and a few spliced YouTube videos for your enjoyment.

We have achieved a lot but this campaign is not over by a long shot. Stay tuned over at DraftKleeb.com for more and more updates or click here to sign up for email updates.

Also, if you have to do so, please take the time to pledge your volunteer hours or donations to the potential Scott Kleeb for Senate campaign. I'm sure I sound like a broken record but we have to let Scott know that we have his back in what will be a tough race.
