News from Yearly Kos

The Yearly Kos netroots convention is celebrating grassroots democratic activism.

The Sun-Times covers the events Thursday evening. Howard Dean spoke with perceptiveness and passion about grassroots democracy and the internet.

I was even impressed by Dick Durbin’s appearance by video (he was leaving for Iraq and Afghanistan). He was on top of internet issues and also avoided the robot-speak so common among Washington politicians. He came across as a genuine human being.

Senator Clinton won’t stay for a smaller breakout session after an appearance on Saturday afternoon, unlike the other candidates. This appears to be an innocent mix-up between her staff and that of Yearly Kos, but the bloggers are deeply disappointed and I think Clinton missed an important opportunity.

Update: Senator Clinton will do the breakout session after all, at 12 pm.
