Just got an email from the Hackett campaign. Sent specifically to bloggers. So maybe they were listening when I said they needed to use those registrations already! Or maybe the timing makes it look that way – let me feel important, would ya?

I’m not clear if it is a blogger only event, but there will be a conference call with Hackett’s wife. The thing that struck me is this:
