Dear DNC: Make a note of Monday, August 16, Atlanta. It might change your southern strategy
The public rally was added to the schedule only on Friday. A last minute but prescient call.
In the words of my buddy Mae, this eleventh hour decision was made that "Sen. John Edwards will grace the unwashed masses with a brief appearance on Monday at the Georgia International Convention Center before heading over to a $2000 a person fundraiser, the proceeds of which will leave GA before the ice melts in the Steuben glasses." (We love you Mae.)
Only 3,500 enthusiastic fans showed up; heck, what if there had been more than two days' notice.
Democratic National Committee, nationally the Democrats have been able to raise money this go round unlike anything we have ever witnessed. Thus we don't really care if the DNC got the $1 million you were hoping to raise.
What we do care about is that you were paying attention, and that you got the message. It was a big one!!!
