The Summit Has Resumed

Shuttle Pod #5 from Kestrel9000 should be starting up soon


Yes; Rep. Weiner kicked us off with the liveblogging this morning, but as he has a real job, he is not here to update the diary with links to all the subsequent shuttle pod diaries, and there are too many comments for it to be the current one.

Link to Mothership is Here

Kimoconnor took it upon herself to bring us the first shuttle pod.  

Please unrec the other diaries so we are not hogging the rec list.  Kimoconnor had to leave, so this will be the new mothership to keep us all on track.  

Rep. Weiner's Live Blog #2

If you would like to do a shuttle pod diary, please leave a comment with "I volunteer" in the title. Timing on these is crazy unpredictable, so please keep in mind there's no "schedule" proper.

With that, you can view the summit on CSPAN


and at the White House's website.

So jump on in!

For the downtimes/GOP speakers, there's all manner of fun reading.  There's this spiffy comparison of the plans as we know them.  And here's a groovy little widget that lets you calculate how Obama's proposal would impact you.

There's also some not so fun reading.  Medicare is facing disastrous cuts, and very soon; the fixes are in the bill and we must get it passed!

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.
