The front-page post has more info on Holder.

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, rec this up, click over to C-SPAN and rec this up so we can keep up with any necessary subsequent diaries.

Which really should get going at congressmatters.

Part II is here.

Part III is here.

jj32 points us to the collection of letters the judiciary committee has received in support of Holder.

Volunteer for diary #3 in 2 hours?

As many of you know, we have a whole new sandbox in which to play over at Congress Matters!  And play we will, starting today!  We will be following the hearing over there, with the Mothership (this diary) parked here to guide people over.  So rec this one up for everyone's viewing and let's hop on over to little orange.

I know what you're thinking - "Gah!  Another login to remember!??!"  But never fear; your dkos username and password are ready and waiting for you over at Congress Matters.  How exciting is that!  Even better, this means you can contribute a diary to the liveblog effort without using up your daily dkos diary!  

On that note, we probably will need a few for today.  If you volunteer for one, have fun with it.  You can copy 'n paste the text from this diary, you can get all Gilbert and Sullivan with it, whatever you wish, just please adhere to the following points (and include the admonishments in your diary as well):

First comment:  reply only with transcripts, please

Second comment:  reply here with snark, commentary, etc.

No Pictures!

So...who is going to post our first liveblog diary over at little orange to kick off the Daschle festivities?  We've still got about an hour yet, but I just wanted everyone to have time to explore Congress Matters a bit before things get going.

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.
