Blogging within the blog: Marc Rubin's interview with Adrienne Mitchell of "The Race" from XM Radio's POTUS '08 channel

Some friends who could not listen to the interview asked if I would "live blog" it. I did, and thought I would share what I wrote (with just a few edits) with others who may have missed the interview but might be interested in what Marc said.

Adrienne Mitchell of the Race is the host. Marc Rubin cofounded The Denver Group with me!

Marc is ON!!

I just got mentioned as The Denver Group’s “chief fundraiser” and Marc was described as the one who handles our media strategy.

Marc is explaining that the Denver Group is not advocating for either candidate but advocating for an open convention.

Honest roll call vote.

Marc notes that Senator Clinton has NOT released her delegates.

Marc is explaining that what we want to do is just make sure that the Democratic Party lives up to democratic principles.

Host asks Marc about his involvement with Count the Votes Cast (for Fl and MI) and Marc explains the only connection between that and the Denver Group, is a matter of getting the DNC to do the right thing!

Marc is doing great!
He’s explaining that if the situations were reversed and Senator Obama had been the injured party, The Denver Group would act the same way.

He’s explaining that at the dinner I was at Senator Obama showed no interest in an open convention, and, Marc adds, Senator Obama does not want Senator Clinton's name on the ballot.

Marc stays on message: neither candidate got enough pledged delegates, this will still be decided by superdelegates.

Marc is explaining that Pelosi strongarmed declarations from superdelegates.

Marc announces the website!
