Wlady, Speaking of speeches, Al Gore (with our very own Bob Barr) is delivering a "major address" today at the DAR Constitution Hall in Washington. I'm sure they'll invoke MLK Jr., but what would be the reaction if President Bush were to deliver a major address today on an apparently unrelated topic?

Anyhow, the group putting on the event, the Liberty Coalition, is a mix of odd bedfellows: Grover Norquist's ATR, the American Conservative Union, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, and Townhall with the ACLU, Mothers Against the Draft, Amnesty International, and MoveOn.org. And the event is co-sponsored by the anti-Federalist Society, the American Constitution Society. I'm not sure what to think of this amalgam, but we'll know more when Al takes the stage at 12 noon today. C-Span is carrying it live.
