Speeches



Can't find any Hillary videos, but I did find her thanking volunteers (the video is not very good, looks like it was a cell phone.
Can't find any Edwards speech videos either, but while searching did find many of his trip to UCLA.
I'll post them when I find em, I'll sure they will show up in the next day.

Live Blog! From My Apartment In Westwood















K, so I just got back from the convention which was a great time. Definate highlights were the Hillary, Obama, and LaRouche speeches, and who can forget, the hospitality suites. I don't wanna write a wrap up of events, someone will come on and do that later. I just wanted to link over to some blogs that have been talking about everything going down. They actually had a little bloggers area to the left of the stage that the SF Chronicle even talks about.

Have fun:

CA Progress Report
Daily Kos
CA Majority Report
LA Times
Rough & Tumble
Orange Juice

Live Blog! from San Diego

Coming to you live from the floor of the 2007 Democratic State Convention, this is Kyle Kleckner, reporting for Bruin Democrats. At this very moment, I am listening to Congresswoman Barbara Lee give a speech highlighting the what the Democratic majorities in Congress have done.

Dennis Kucinich has now taken the stage. And the Leprechaun is passionately outlining his oppostion to rational foregin policy. One of our members says, "I don't mind what Dennis Kucinich is saying. I just don't want him running it."

In any event, Bruin Democrats in here en force with 36 people. This morning, everyone saw Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, and Nancy Pelosi speak. The night before, everyone enjoyed Dennis Kucinich's "Folk Festival and Hootenanny." Yes, that is what it was called.

Tonight, we plan on participating in he election of two of our own members to the board of the California College Democrats. After that, PARTY!

CDP Convention Starts Today


Bruin Dems are migrating south this weekend. Our whole board and around 20 general members will be in San Diego for the Caliornia Democratic Party 2007 convention (and yes I am about to get on the 405 for a 100 mile trip in the middle of rush hour ).

We will be voting on the California Young Democrats elected offices, meeting local elected officials, and possibly more presidential candidates, and all while having a terrific time in the Californian city known as a "whales vagina". We will attempt to blog while down there and give an update on the past days events every morning. Maybe I can get our newly elected President Kyle Kleckner or our newly elected External Vice President Jesse Melgar to make a post or two. We will be checking in and linking to some other blogs and see what they are saying about the convention.

Ok, see you all soon.

Let's Lay Down Our Right To Bear Arms

As Professor Plate of the Communications and Public Policy department says in this editorial:

"Some misguided people will focus on the fact that the 23-year-old student who killed his classmates and others at Virginia Tech was ethnically Korean. This is one of those observations that's 99.99 percent irrelevant. What are we to make of the fact that he is Korean? Ban Ki-moon is also Korean! Our brilliant new United Nations secretary general has not only never fired a gun, it looks like he may have just put together a peace formula for civil war-wracked Sudan -- a formula that escaped his predecessor.

"So let's just disregard all the hoopla about the race of the student responsible for the slayings. These students were not killed by a Korean, they were killed by a 9 mm handgun and a .22-caliber handgun."

Well put sir. I think it's outrageous to look at this in terms of race- it is nothing more than a poor excuse by gun-wielding crazies. Now I don't advocate completely banning firearms, but if the Virginia Tech tragedy and associated opinions like this are not good reasons for why we should start limiting them, than I don't know what is.
