A Preview Of Friday At CLC 07

It's been a long and terrific day getting to the Conservative Leadership Conference, but tomorrow looks even more eventful. I'll be setting up the BlogTalkRadio exhibit booth to demonstrate the ease of the BTR experience, and I'm hoping to win some converts. I'll also be checking in on the speakers, and they have a raft of them on the agenda. Highlights include:

8:15 am PT: Dick Armey

11:30 - John Fund on "Why Reagan Would Tell Conservatives To Be Of Good Cheer"

12:30 - Mitt Romney

That last one might prove a tough call for me. I'm scheduled to do my Week In Review show with Duane Patterson at noon PT, but I'd like to hear Romney speak. I may work some magic on the timing for tomorrow's show, so be on the lookout for any time changes. I want people around when I do the show as well, and most here will be at the Romney event.

Tonight, I had a great dinner with Ken Marrero and his lovely wife, and Warner Todd Huston. Earlier in the evening, I met up again with Andrea Shea-King and Eric Odom, and had a chance to talk with the Sam Adams Alliance's director Jodi Bridges, who may work with BTR on another event in the near future. John McJunkin of Avalon Podcasting recorded an interview that Jenn Sierra did of me for Fort Hard Knox.

Keep an eye on this blog for more CLC-07 blogging, and more of the usual stuff as well!

Tell good ol' Dick Armey to go to shove it for me, OK? If I ever meet him, I will share with him the contempt I have for the kind of cowardice he displayed regarding the Plame non-affair.
What does he offer except examples of how to betray one's boss.

Is there a group that has no future in politics as a bunch of white middle class conservatives. Even when Republicans (the nominal conservative party) they failed to implement almost anything that could be considered conservative. Now that President Bush as destroyed the brand name "conservative" along with the changing demographics of the United States,
does anyone believe that the U.S. can operate with conservative principles with half the population is black or Hispanic?

Ed, it was great to meet you and thanks for advising me to order the skirt steak!

To the folks that frequent CQBlog, I would like to take a minute to recommend attending something like the CLC. It's so easy to sit there at home with your computer serving as your only window to the world, but if we are to advance a conservative message we also need to network in the dreaded real world.

On that note, I'd like to thank Ed Morrissey for coming out and participating at the CLC. It would have been easy for him to just ignore a first time event like this because it is untested. But he took the chance and came out.

You'd be amazed at how many top bloggers, politicos and pundits wouldn't give us a hearing for the CLC. Ed was happy to lend his name to our event and we appreciate his efforts.

So, thanks Ed and it was great meeting you.
