Hillary Clinton Is Coming To Kentucky Tuesday, November 08, 2005

Senator Hillary Clinton (D-NY) is going to be in Louisville for a fund raiser for both the party and then a second one for herself. It's another attempt by the KDP to bring in high profile Democrats into the state. So far they've had John Edwards, Max Cleland, and Senator Joe Biden (D-DE). While these do raise money and it's important, more needs to be done to invigorate the party. The Democrats need to come up with a strong message and consistantly control the agenda. They also need to work more with the people because most people can't afford $10,000 a plate dinners to meet with national figures.

The $10,000/plate Democrat leadership i don't want to hear from - if i want a slightly diluted Republican message, i'll tune in McCain.

Does NO ONE in the actual upper reaches of the 'Dim-ocratic' party YET understand? Most Democrats DO NOT want Hillary Clinton as a Presidential Candidate! I'm getting closer every day to voting for McCain if he runs, just because he's more in tune with many true Democrats ideas than our supposed 'Dim-ocrat' leaders.
$10,000 plate dinners and talking to Hollywood stars is NOT giving them access to the majority of Democrats. To be blunt, The Democratic party is the Party of No Money. We're the folks who want government supported social programs, because we can't pay for groceries, let alone a $10,000 chicken breast with a side of brussel sprouts and a cup of coffee.

Lets see ONE candidate host a $5.00 a plate fundraiser with burgers & potato salad. Lets see them listen to concerns about making a choice between Formula for the baby or paying the phone bill. When I see Hillary at such a fund raiser, I *might* begin to believe she actually is in tune with the real Democrats.

The minimum is $100 to go but I'm no HRC fan.

For me, as a newcomer to being interested/involved in politics, part of the thrill of an event like this was seeing one of these people up close and getting to meet them. Meeting Joe Biden was worth $100. He was warm, charismatic, and a great speaker. For me, it was like meeting a celebrity. Lame, but it was. And the feeling that I left with after dinner lasted a good 2 weeks. I was excited and motivated. A friend that I went with felt the same way. I believe that creating that feeling is very important in reinvigorating the party and it needs to continue. So I say, keep the big names coming to Kentucky. We are still a red state. We need the help. I am not sure that any politician can truly connect with real Democrats. To be a politician, you need money. Most are from wealthy families. None of us have money...that's why we're not Republicans. I just remember being so disappointed (I was naive) that to meet someone like Joe Biden, President Clinton, etc. in the past, it would cost $500 or $1000 for dinner! I was elated when I heard they were making $100 tickets available. And then to drop it to $40 the week of the event! Wow! But I am easily amused...
