Presidential candidate Chris Dodd will be with us tomorrow starting at 5pm ET/2pm PT for a live video vlogging session where he will answer questions left by the FDL community in the comment section.
Our first live vlogging session with John Laesch last Saturday was a huge success. Howie Klein went to Illinois and live streamed the interview for Blue America. Tomorrow, we're going to do things a little differently. This time Senator Dodd will be talking about the supplemental vote last week as well as new legislation he plans to be introducing on Iraq. A video of the event will then be available for viewing and downloading.
There is a new article in the LA Times which says that military leaders are acknowledging that the benchmarks set for the Iraqi government are already unattainable. That didn't take long, did it?
Dodd deserves a lot of credit for getting out in front of all the other '08 candidates on voting against those useless Iraqi benchmarks that Bush is free to ignore and also for putting pressure on Clinton and Obama. For my money I believe if he hadn't pushed as aggressively as he did things might have gone another way — he left them no choice but to vote against it. It should be interesting to see how he rates in the next DKos straw poll, his leadership position and his ability to move with agililty within the blogosphere to draw the dialog to the left have certainly earned him both notice and praise.
While he certainly wants to talk about a plan for moving Congress on Iraq, Senator Dodd has expressed his willingness to take questions on all topics. So if you'd like to ask him about habeas corpus, energy or any other issue, feel free to do so.
So what question are you itching to ask the Senator? We've set up a page dedicated for questions, so feel free to leave them here.
