Boy, do we have a great weekend planned for you guys.

This week, Howie had an opportunity to interview our favorite Connecticut hero, Ned Lamont, for Saturday's Blue America.  I cannot wait for you all to read the wonderful write-up that Howie has done of their conversation.  I just know you will all love the interview.  But…what's better than a great article about Ned?

Yes, that's right, this week's Blue America guest is going to be none other than Ned Lamont — live, in the comments, right here at FDL tomorrow starting at 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET.  Answering your questions and stopping by to say hello to everyone.

Poor Howie will have to miss the chat, though, because something has come up that he has to deal with tomorrow.  (Yes, he is bummed.)

But fear not, readers and political junkies, for Jane and I have volunteered to be your Blue America hostesses for tomorrow's chat.  So please, drop by and say hello to Ned, and thanks for a job well done:  for having the integrity to ask the tough questions about the mess in Iraq; for daring to utter the word accountability at a time when the Washington establishment was shuffling around in the corner somewhere trying to make nice with the very people causing the problems; and for standing up for the concerns of average Americans on education and health care and poverty and so many other issues over the course of the campaign. 

Ned's campaign was inspiring and energizing, and I cannot wait to thank him in person tomorrow.

Saturday's Blue America is going to be a great one, so do not miss it.  Stop by, say hello to Ned, and find out whether he's finally cleaned up his messy desk.  (Honestly, I don't care about Ned's desk.  I just wanted an excuse to link up this ad again.  Love it.)  Say thanks, ask a question, just hang out in the comments and chat.  But do stop by and let Ned know just how much we all appreciate his efforts on our behalf.  It takes a lot of courage to put yourself on the line in the nasty world of politics these days — Ned did so with honor and integrity and a whole lot of heart.  And we are so happy to be able to thank him for all of that tomorrow at 11:00 am PT/2:00 pm ET.

As if that weren't enough excitement, we also have Elizabeth de la Vega stopping by for Book Salon on Sunday afternoon at 2:00 pm PT/5:00 pm ET .  

Whew, what a weekend! 

(And yes, I have still had enough of Joe Lieberman.  But I can never get enough of this song.  Go Tommy Yum and Ken!  Go TRex!)
