Ledbetter, Baldwin, Longoria to address DNC convention

Share

Now this is a fun line up. And yes, Longoria will get us tons of attention. Plus, it's a nice play after all the women bashing the GOP has been doing.

The Democratic National Convention Committee unveiled a list of prominent women Wednesday to speak at party's upcoming convention in Charlotte, including Planned Parenthood president Cecile Richards and Lilly Ledbetter, the woman who gave the name to President Obama's signature pay equity law.

(snip)

Among the speakers are Wisconsin Rep. Tammy Baldwin, the openly gay Democratic Senate candidate; Illinois congressional candidate and Iraq war veteran Tammy Duckworth; Maryland Sen. Barbara Mikulski, the longest-serving female senator and Nancy Keenan, who heads NARAL Pro-Choice America.

The speaker who may draw the most media attention: actress Eva Longoria, who is a national co-chair of Obama's campaign.

Sandra Fluke, the Georgetown student who has been a surrogate for Obama since her showdown this year with Rush Limbaugh, is also on the list, as are Montana Superintendent of Public Instruction Denise Juneau and Caroline Kennedy, the daughter of the late president.

New York Post- Caroline Kennedy Had Miniseries Dropped

Share

Now I don't consider the NYP a bulkhead of journalistic integrity, but I think I'd pretty much do the same thing if my parents reputations were going to be smeared. Access is access, and if you piss me off you're out of luck. Via Taegan-

Caroline Kennedy "blackmailed" the History Channel to drop its new eight hour miniseries, The Kennedys, which was to air in March, according to the New York Post.

"Kennedy had leveled an ultimatum to the companies -- dump the reportedly warts- and-all miniseries or lose her cooperation in the planned fall release of never-before-heard conversations with her mother. Unless The Kennedys was killed, she'd cancel the release of the audiotapes on ABC and refuse to publicize the book of transcripts of the tapes to be released by Hyperion. ABC, A&E and Hyperion are all owned by Disney."
