Bumped - Todd
With the Democratic nomination contest finally over, Democrats now have the opportunity to put the rancor of last many months behind them and unite to defeat the Republicans in November by taking the White House and adding to our leads in the House and Senate.
Among the most important issues that will arise for the next administration is the question of accountability for the villains that preceded it in the Executive Branch. Yesterday on Countdown with Keith Olbermann, Richard Clarke suggested a "Truth and Reconciliation Commission". Some would go farther, others less far.
But few in American politics today have as much personal knowledge and experience with the Bush Administration's lies and its mafia-style intimidation as Ambassador Joe Wilson, whom clammyc and I will be interviewing today at 2pmPST/5pmEST. And topic we'll be covering? Accountability for Bush and his cronies after that glorious day on which they leave office.

Were you impressed by what happened in MS-01? Well, then wait 'til you get a load of what's happening down in Alabama's 3rd district.
Proud Democrat Josh Segall is all set to take out Bush Rubberstamp Republican Mike Rogers in this northeast Alabama district, and you can hear me and clammyc interview him live today at 3pmEST/noonPST. Now before you scoff and think this is just another vanity candidate running an unwinnable race in the deep south, <u>think again</u>. I'll let Wikipedia do the talking for a bit here on this tightly contested, extremely doable race:
