Young Democrats Meeting

As mentioned earlier, the Young Democrats of America met in Philadelphia this past weekend. Here is a recap from their web page:

YDA had a crazy delicious time in the city of brotherly love, Philadelphia, PA during our Winter Conference Feb. 17-19, 2006. We had some of our best speakers to date and trainings that armed our members with skills needed to get our peers to the polls, to build up our chapters and to get more Democrats elected. New information and updates were given about our Chapter Revolution program and Alliance peer-to-peer campaigns.

We also elected new leadership for the College Caucus and High School Caucus. We look forward to seeing great things from all of the energetic student leaders of these two new caucuses.

Thank you Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Young Democrats for hosting a great conference!

Speakers included:
Governor Ed Rendell
Bob Casey
Lois Murphy
Bob Brady
Joe Hoeffel
Patrick Murphy
Leecia Roberta Eve
Blondell Reynolds-Brown
Fran Fattah
Juan Ramos
Joanne Tosti-Vasey
And many more...

By coincidence I was showing a woman with a guide dog through the subway today. She said she needed the El. I asked if that the same thing as the blue line. She told me she had no idea what color trains were. I felt very silly.
