I'm back with another post about the Blogher Conference. Here's a picture of Elizabeth Edwards speaking with Lisa Stone for the closing speech.
After speaking with Mr. X, who suggested I call him that, I'm trying not to go into a wild rant about how the Daily Kos Conference in Chicago is getting all kinds of media coverage unlike Blogher. He thought I was in Chicago this weekend for that conference and was saying how we women bloggers must feel great being courted by the media and all the political candidates. I had to clarify that we were there last weekend and that mainstream media hadn't been all that interested from what I saw. Being angry and ranting doesn't work well for women as I read in this article. So I'm trying to be cool, calm, and collected. Is it working? Or is the sarcasm dripping from my mouth like a wet noodle?
I'm especially disappointed that as far as I know, Barack Obama didn't have any kind of presence at Blogher. Why? Chicago is his city. Doesn't he value women voters? Is he taking my vote for granted? I've been leaning towards Obama, but I'm still undecided. I like John Edwards. Hillary Clinton could sway me too. Why wasn't the Blogher conference more of a news story last weekend? I guess we weren't considered newsworthy. If Paris Hilton had shown up, we would have had more media coverage than we could handle.
*Updated 8/25/09* A lot can change in a couple of years. Since I added LinkWithin to my posts, this old one keeps showing up again and has been annoying me. I am so disappointed with John Edwards that it's almost too much to mention. I am very happy that Obama is our President and hope that he can move health reform forward. There. I feel better.
