LUNCH: Pelosi, Napolitano, Solis, Perdue, Shaheen, Hagan, Clinton
LM and I are having lunch with the most powerful women in the United States.
More accurately, we're sitting in the back of the room as these amazing women have lunch in front of 2,000 major donors, while giving killer speeches. On the other hand, it is pretty damn fun being here.
You can watch LIVE and hear what they say, or wait till later and read our filing.
It's in 50 minutes from NOW, at 12:15 PM Eastern/9:15 AM Pacific.
LIVE on CSPAN1 at 12:15/9:15 ET/PT; they're doing transmission checks now.
You can also check the lunch live-streaming TODAY at 12/9 ET/PT.

LM and I are in the back of the media section next to the CNN camera.
(Yes, Sara, I rented a scooter. I simply couldn't handle being on my feet and trying to walk one more day, plus carrying stuff even a little bit, although LM's of course been wonderful. I still hurt SO much from having my bag on my shoulder. Like a f***ing knife is stabbing me in my shoulder clear through to the bone. *sighs* Even with the meds I take, it doesn't help. The good thing is, everyone is being really really wonderful with us. The Emily's List people are a joy to work with. Allison in particular has been great. I can't say enough about how well they've taken care of us.)
AGAIN, THIS LUNCHEON GOES LIVE 50 MINUTES FROM NOW.
WATCH CNN1 OR WATCH THE LIVE STREAM.
We'll file later today on the event, as well as on the HUGE Opening Ceremony event LIVE on HBO with many of the top music acts in the world.
