Poll: Who's Your Choice for JJ Speaker?

The Democratic Party of Georgia just elected new leadership, and now our task is to begin to raise the money to fund efforts to win elections. One of the first opportunities to do that will be in March at the annual JJ dinner. This is typically an important fundraising event for the DPG. I hope that we will open our checkbooks and make it clear that Georgia Democrats are hear to stay and ready to win! With that in mind, who would you like to hear speak at the JJ? Who would be the biggest draw? Who would motivate us and get folks to that dinner who have never attended before? Cast your vote below.

None of the above. Let's get a dynamic young person out in front who can really motivate us. This old format fundraising dinner needs a new twist. It does nothing to bring the party together - we all sit with our friends and local delegations.

What about musical chairs before dessert? Something! It's so dull...

Thanks for the invitation Catherine, regrettably i'll be tied up under the gold dome violating Tom Murphy sponsored gallery rule 14 again. Cousin Sonny usually schedules Crossover night to coincide with the JJ dinner.

But i like your style. Twister by the open bar, musical chairs before dessert,a Georgia Improper Sexy Shoe Contest (with male and female categories), co-ed mud wrestling after dinner and the night is guaranteed to capture global imaginations.

I don't like this new poll system, can't cast 35 votes anymore.

Yeah, that voting thing is a drawback. Got someone in mind, Catherine?

I would like very much to hear more from Ashley Bell from Gainesville, who nominated Sally Rosser last week at the DPG elections. Or Emily Schunior, President of the Young Democrats of Fulton/Atlanta. Or Kyle Bailey, YD and Atlanta Stonewall ED.

Maybe they could be the MCs?

Showcasing our up and coming stars as MCs is a great idea. However, to draw a crowd at $200 a head, a big name is definitely in order.
Electing a Democratic president in 2008 is an exciting prospect as far as I am concerned...but musical chairs does sound like fun, too.
