Streets of Philly
“Want to be in a music video for Hillary?”
That’s the question posted on Sen. Hillary RodhamClinton’s presidential campaign Web site, calling interested volunteers to “the streets of Philadelphia” on the afternoon of Saturday, April 5.
“You don’t need to know how to sing at all! Just be enthusiastic, willing and available to be included in video footage,” the posting encourages. “If you are of voting age and up, and would love to be a part of a song that mentions issues Hillary stands for, then we’d love to hear from you.”
Mother of primaries
The registration deadline was midnight Monday for Pennsylvanians to vote in the pivotal April 22 Democratic primary, and given the unprecedented number of registered voters, expect a high turnout at the polls.
State election officials count a record 4.05 million Democrats who have registered to vote in the primary, the first time the 4 million mark was broken. Polls show Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton with a sizable lead over Sen. Barack Obama, although the latter is counting on the state’s young people to come out and support him.
A recent Quinnipiac poll shows 63 percent of likely Democratic voters under age 34 supporting Mr. Obama’s candidacy.
Speaking of Sen. Barack Obama, guess who’s accepting “The Obama Challenge” to help all Americans pursue happiness and prosperity?
Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, that’s who.
“He is right. Americans must demand real change from elected officials,” says Mr. Gingrich, who explains he will espouse further on the Obama challenge during a 12:30 p.m. address tomorrow at the American Enterprise Institute.
It all started when Idaho House Speaker Lawerence Denney noticed that some members of the press were not joining with lawmakers and reciting the Pledge of Allegiance at the start of House proceedings.
Among them, Heath Druzin of the Idaho Statesman, who later explained that while he does hold his hand over his heart he “internalizes” the Pledge.View Entire Story
