Big Netroots announcement! The Big Dawg is coming to Pittsburgh
Dear Sharon,

In June, a dozen or so bloggers got a chance to meet with President Bill Clinton for a candid discussion on a range of topics, ranging from the environment to health care to the role of todays new progressive era.

Reading about this meeting of got us to thinking: What if President Clinton came to Netroots Nation to discuss this new progressive era? After all, governance and grassroots activism is a huge focus of our convention this year.

Well, we are thrilled to announce that President Bill Clinton will join us in Pittsburgh to help kick off our fourth annual convention on Thursday night.

Click here to register now.

At a time when we're all working together to make sure we get the change we voted for, President Clinton's message is spot-on. After all, holding our leaders accountable is one of the things bloggers and activists do best.

Over the past seven years, you've played big a huge role in transforming electoral politics. I hope you'll join me in Pittsburgh as we shift our focus from electoral politics to governance.

See you next week!

Raven Brooks
Executive Director, Netroots Nation

P.S. Seriously, if you haven't registered, what are you waiting for? Join me and President Bill Clinton next week in Pittsburgh.

2. That's very nice
but a link would be helpful.

I know someone (local to Pittsburgh) who would jump on this opportunity, as long as no exorbitant fees were involved.

6. Registration for Thursday through Sunday is $275. Don't know if it is necessary for the
Clinton event.

12. I live IN Pittsburgh, but I can't come to any of it. $275 is a LOT of money.

Seriously, if you haven't registered, what are you waiting for? Join me and President Bill Clinton next week in Pittsburgh.


Would love to register, but $275 would go quite far toward our work here for election integrity, paying for internet or phone bill, food or rent, etc. Times are hard and money is dear.

:-(

13. It is tough.
I thought long and hard about it before registering. I missed last year's, though, and was sorry I did.

14. They should have one-day passes available. I could not come for more than that anyway, and...

...all the more reason why $275 (or even $175) I cannot justify paying. I would love to come for one day and even would get a Caucus on Election Integrity together for that day, but....... o well....

:-(
