John McCain Woos Bloggers

The political bloggers are all actively pursuing an invite to Senator McCain's blog briefings. The Moderate Voice reports in a post titled:

The Bloggers Invited to Question John McCain:

"Going forward, Mr. Hynes said, the campaign would like to have Mr. McCain talk to sports bloggers, too, as a way to “humanize John McCain as something other than a carbon-copy politician running for office, delivering talking points.”"

What about the bookseller and book review bloggers?

Hey Joni I just read on NY Times that Sen. Ted Kennedy had a seizure of some kind, and there was some concern.

Gosh, what a dynasty, after taking over his brother's job in 1962 (wow, I was a little tyke then!).

I rarely venture into political biography unless they are prior to WWI but in this case I'll make an exception. Is there anything out there on the dear old man?

Edward M. Kennedy: A Biography by Adam Clymer is generally considered to be the definitive biography of the Liberal Lion.

Kennedy has signed a book deal with the publisher Twelve Books for his autobiography, which is scheduled to be published in 2010. That is one I will look forward to reading.

He is an incredible legislator - I must admit I love to listen to him when he is speaking on the floor of the Senate. I am a CSPAN junkie.
