At the event on Monday night in Arlington there were a number of local activists, but it also attracted some nationally respected bloggers. Among those where Jerome Armstrong from MyDD and Jane Hamsher from FireDogLake, both of whom gave short little speaches. The following is a video of what they had to say.
I realize the sound quality is a rather poor, but that's because we were in a restarant with other people having dinner in the background. Also, I was using my flip video camera which is nice because it's small enough to fit in my pocket and carry around and wasn't expensive, but the microphone on it isn't very good.
