Today's Blue America guest at Firedoglake will be Congressman Tom Allen.
When Howie talked to him a few days ago in preparation for the live blog session today, he asked Tom if he has a special song that has meant a lot to him over the years and that he still likes listening to. It's one that a lot of idealistic, progressive legislators and activists still single out, Bob Dylan's "The Times, They Are A-Changin'":
If you'd like to prepare yourself for the live chat, Howie's already got a preview up at Down With Tyranny. Tom will be live at FDL at 2pm (Maine time, 11am, PT). If you can't make it, the Crooks & Liars Blue America page is open and Tom can use all the help he can get, since he's not only battling it out with rubber stamp Republican Susan Collins but with her biggest booster, Holy Joe Lieberman, who is paying Bush and Rove back for their support last year by trying to keep Collins in the Senate. Believe me, even $5.00 and $10.00 contributions go a long way. Last year we raised over $500,000 in 4 months with lots and lots of small donations.
