One more note before I move on to more important things.
YearlyKos will be addressed this year by just about the entire Democratic Party leadership -- Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chuck Schumer, and Dick Durbin.
It will feature a candidate forum of all the top Democratic candidates -- Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, Barack Obama, Chris Dodd, and Bill Richardson.
It will also be addressed by other notable elected Democrats like Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer, Sen. Jon Tester, Reps. Rahm Emanuel, Paul Hodes, Lynn Woolsey, Mike Panetta, Tim Walz, and Steve Kagen. Gen. Wesley Clark will be there, as well as dozens of other mainstream, notable Democrats.
Anyone who tries to claim this is a "hate" gathering is saying, essentially, that the entire Democratic Party is a "hate" party. And sure, there are plenty of rabid crazies on the other side that would make such a claim, but no reasonable person will think that.
And that's the key -- anyone who claims this event is anything but a celebration of the best the Democratic Party has to offer is simply, to put it mildly, blinded by partisan rage and completely out-of-touch with reality.
