NowPublic and Politisite Guest Blogging from
the Myrtle Beach Palace Theater CNN and Congressional Black
Caucus Democratic Debate Tonight

Up Date:  Jan 21, 2008 11:30
Eastern –  With the large amount of material we acquired from
the Myrtle Beach Debate we have decided to do a series of stories
leading up to the South Carolina Primary.  We will add links to
the stories from here but you will also see them in que on the
Politics Page. 

 

 

 05:00am- Update-  The
security was so tight at the debate I think I saw more Secret Service
than Press.  I had heard another news service say that Senator
Obama was receiving death threats.  I spoke with the Secret
Service agent on this issue and he related that there have been no
death threats made against Obama that were credible.  The high
Security was due to over 35 members of congress attending along with
The Clinton’s and Senator Obama.  So we can put those rumors to
bed once and for all.

 

The logistics were very difficult. 
Our plans were to post form the filing room following our return from
the spin room. Understand both of these areas are usually in the
venue.  The press filing room was more than a mile away from the
Spin Room and transportation was not as fluid as we would have
liked.  I have much more material to upload plus a transcript /
comment evaluation of the event.  I am thinking that I will
write a follow-up story and add the journalistic synopsis of the
event as it was an exciting debate.  Since it is 5am eastern I
will put my work to rest for the night.  The best way to read
this blog is from bottom up.

 

Keep in mind, I am awaiting your
feedback for the debate.  Who won, lost, has a plan, who will
you Not vote for and why.  I expect to awake to a full mailbox
because thats what Citizen Journalism is all about.  Remember
the News is NOWPUBLIC

 

Good Night from Myrtle Beach SC. 

 

2:48am – Update – We are
currently uploading Photos from the Candidates.

 

2:15am – I will be uploaded a heated
interview with Congresswoman Jackson Lee on her support
of Senator Clinton.  I also interviewed Howard Dean
from the DNC.  I have a few more surprises as well.  I will
be writing up a follow up article on this heated and exciting debate.

 

At 23:05 – Update –  QUESTION: Do you think
America is ready for a black president or not? Answer in the comments
section.

       

QUESTION: Do you think America is ready for a woman president
or not?

 What are your answers NowPublic? 
Let us know where you stand.  CNN provided this poll to generate
discussion for their Race in America segment following the debate.

 

At 22:00 – Update- Audio clips of interviews will be uploaded as
we  clear from the spin room.  The press filing center is
located at Phillips Seafood, they are catering the event.  The
problem is the Spin Room is a  bus ride.  We literally have
to file our reports, hop on the media bus to the Palace Theater get
our interviews and return to upload our work.  Hang in there
following the debate for our photos and coverage.   
There is a sand sculpture of the candidates we will be photographing
and uploading soon.  Make sure you see some of the other reports
we have uploaded prior to the debate.  I will transfer the more
important comments to the body of the story as time goes on. 
The blog will also be available at http://politisite.wordpress.com
and http://politisite.blogspot.com 

At 21:40 – Update – Hilliary is
harping on Obama voting Present rater than Yeah or Nay.  The
problem with Hilliary is she votes on bills she doesn’t read

at 21:28 – Update – Well it appears
the gloves have come off.  Hilliary was on the board at Walmart
and Obama fighting for Slum Lords in Chicago.  Edwards ask how
many people are we helping with this rhetoric

at 21:25 – Update – Just uploaded photos of the Myrtle Beach
Sculptures of the candidates.  Wolf Blittzer and others

At 20:30 – Update –  How
would you as NowPublic Readers Answer these questions.  Please
post your answers in the Comments section below the full article. 

QUESTION: Dr. Martin Luther King gave his famous “I Have a
Dream Speech” at a civil rights march in Washington in 1963. 
In your view, how much of Dr. King’s “dream” that he talked
about has been fulfilled today  — all of it, a great deal, a
moderate amount, not very much, or none of it?

CNN Released this poll during the
debate to follow-up on the Show, Race and Politics.  What are
your insights?  Political Correctness is not necessary. So get
involved with your comments.

at 19:45 pm – Update – My Photo
Journalist, Kathy, has just left on the bus to do the spray of the
candidates.  We have a few photos to upload but searching for
our upload cable.  We will upload the spray following the
debate.  

 

at 17:00 Pm – My photographer and I arrived and passed through
security.  We re working diligently to get Kathy on the media
spray of the candidates prior to the debate.  This is were the
major news services each have a photographer to photograph the
candidates from the venue.  

Thanks for your interest.  Ask any questions you may have for
our team at Politisite, the candidates, and the celebrities who will
be attending.  Obama Girl, Congressman Clyburn, President Bill
Clinton and more.  I will as questions you are interested in so
you will be part of the debate process.

it’s like to cover a media event in the world of United States
politics.  My photo Journalist will be uploading photos 
throughout the night.  Credentialed media will not be in the
debate auditorium, except for a photo spray of the candidates before
the debate begins. We will be in the media press room were all those
bloggers, TV Crews, and news services you watch and read do their
magic. Following the debate, We will be in the Spin Room interviewing
the candidates and celebrities as they arrive. We believe President
Bill Clinton will be there for interviews. Its always fun to bet on
which candidate will be there doing their spinning.  That’s were
candidates go to, “correct the record”, after they make all
of their mistakes at the podiums.

Please check back, throughout the day, as I will be adding
information about the CBCI, CNN, and Myrtle Beach.  Debate

Democratic Debate Day

WASHINGTON (CNN) — He’s not on the ballot this cycle,
but it wouldn’t be a big surprise to see former President Bill
Clinton take the stage with the remaining Democratic presidential
contenders at tonight’s CNN/Congressional Black Caucus Institute
debate in South Carolina.

The former president was nearly as much of a presence leading up
to Saturday’s Nevada caucuses as his wife, Sen. Hillary Clinton –
or any of the Democratic candidates, really. In Nevada, as in New
Hampshire, President Clinton was in a fighting mood the night before
the vote, taking direct aim at Sen. Barrack Obama; and again, in
defiance of the polls, his wife pulled out a win.

This time, Obama is calling foul. President Clinton may not be a
candidate this year, Obama told ABC, but he’s starting to feel as
though he’s “running
against both Clinton’s.
” Top Obama strategist David Axelrod is
chiming in too, accusing the couple of a “good cop, bad cop”
routine this campaign season.

There may be no method to this madness, but there’s certainly a
routine developing in the Clinton-Obama feud: Public truces are made,
then broken hours later; last-minute, dueling conference calls are
scheduled an hour or so apart; escalating charges and counter-charges
are traded, investigations called for, inboxes flooded with
allegations of distortion and dirty tricks. The over-under on
response time from either side, in a Sunday CNN calculation, is down
to a mind-warping seven minutes.

And as shock waves from the chaotic Nevada caucuses continue to
ripple through Democratic ranks, yet another unwelcome pattern seems
to be repeating itself. Last week, during the dustup over Sen.
Clinton’s comments on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s legacy,
observers noted that her campaign stood to benefit every time race
was on the table, no matter the context.

This week, Obama may have the most to gain from the emerging
dynamic: African-American voters in South Carolina have been swinging
his way, according to recent polls – and nothing motivates the base
quite like the charges of voter suppression coming out of Nevada.
Both the Clinton and Obama campaigns are accusing the other of
engaging in the practice.

The brutal bloodletting of the primary season may disappear
quickly after a nominee is decided. But will the battle wounds really
heal completely by November?

Momentum seems to have a short shelf life this cycle, but for what
it’s worth, two Republicans come out of Saturday’s vote with the
wind at their backs. John McCain won the kingmaker South Carolina
contest, eight years after his campaign collapsed there. And Ron
Paul’s second-place showing in Nevada’s neglected GOP caucuses –
and near-tie with third-place Fred Thompson in South Carolina –
may, at least for the moment, silence the skeptics. (Could it be the
blimp?)

The list
of walking wounded
out of South Carolina is longer. It includes:
Mike Huckabee, who actually split the state’s evangelical vote with
John McCain; Fred Thompson, whose last-stand heroics translated into
an underwhelming 16 percent finish; and Rudy Giuliani, whose Florida
focus reduced his Saturday showing there to an asterisk.

Somewhere in the middle: Mitt Romney, who comes out of the weekend
with a delegate lead, a caucus win – and a disappointing
fourth-place showing in South Carolina, despite spending as much on
ads there as the rest of the Republican field combined.
