Update #3: Hillary the first presidential candidate to condemn today’s Supreme Court ruling rejecting school diversity plans that consider race. This will be a major topic at tonight’s debate. The debate is at Howard University, a predominately African-American college. “On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the valiant struggle to integrate Little Rock Central High School, let us remember the millions who marched, fought and even paid the ultimate price to help ensure every child in America has an opportunity to attend diverse, high-quality schools.” We are sure Obama will follow with a statement soon.
Update #2: “Former New York City Mayor David Dinkins endorses Hillary Clinton for the Democratic presidential nomination.” “I’m with Hillary Clinton,” said Dinkins. “You see, Dominic, if you go to the dance and you bring a girl to the dance and then you arrive at the dance and you see another girl who’s got charisma and she’s attractive and articulate and whatnot, you don’t leave the girl you brought, you stay with your friends; and Hillary Clinton and Bill Clinton campaigned for me, and I will never forget it.”
Update: “In a campaign season that’s been dominated so far by Iraq, the 90-minute session at Howard University, a predominantly black college in the nation’s capital, will focus on domestic issues, with emphasis on how they affect minority and poor communities. Eight candidates will share the stage, but the spotlight will focus most on the two Democratic front-runners, Sens. Hillary Clinton of New York and Barack Obama of Illinois.”
We will probably post comments about the debate while the debate is on tonight. We will debunk attacks on Hillary here on the website, as it happens. Join us and feel free to comment on the proceedings as well.
A group of young professionals organizing support for Hillary will host a “watch party” in Washington, D.C. The group, Young Lawyers for Hillary invites you to join with like minded Democrats to cheer on the next president as she debates other candidates for the nomination. All are invited.
The debate watch party will be at Stetson’s on Thursday, June 28th. The group will celebrate the launch of their new website as well (www.younglawyersforhillary.com).
Stetson’s Bar and Grill is located at 1610 U Street NW (16th and U). The event is from 8:00 p.m. to 10:30 p.m.
Let’s all watch and cheer on Senator Hillary Clinton. She has demonstrated her excellence on all the previous debates. Won them flat out.
Expect lots of attacks on Hillary tonight. This is one of the few chances for her faltering opponents to make news and keep their campaigns afloat so they will take advantage of the opportunity.
