Today, Senator Dodd issued the following statement on Blogosphere Day and supporting ActBlue:

Today is the fourth annual Blogosphere Day and the netroots are coming together to support ActBlue. I congratulate ActBlue for their continued success as the online clearinghouse for Democratic action. They have helped Democratic candidates around the country and at all levels of government raise over $25 million since 2004.

Yesterday, blogger Matt Stoller wrote, "ActBlue is a representation of what is great about our country, that the principles of diversity, openness, transparency, and collective action can and do work." I couldn't agree more. ActBlue has set the ground for Democratic growth nationwide, by removing traditional barriers that have limited political participation.

ActBlue has enabled the Democratic grassroots to come together and effectively support Democratic success -- their work deserves wide recognition for its value.

As a candidate who has benefited from ActBlue's work, I'm proud to donate on Blogosphere Day in support of ActBlue's continued efforts to provide tools that enable all Democrats a chance to succeed and help turn America "blue."

Yesterday the Dodd campaign pushed back on Bill O'Reilly and Fox News for their smear of DailyKos. Your outpouring of support was greatly appreciated. I have a write up of it on the Dodd Blog, but I can only post here once a day and the statement above is more worthy of your attention, IMHO.

Disclosure: I proudly work for Chris Dodd's presidential campaign.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
