    Prominent panelists, fascinating discussion, very well-organized and timely event which was pulled together on short notice. Provided an opportunity to meet and speak with the people behind the websites and emails we're all familiar with.

    Best event I've attended to date.
    Moving peechs by Liz Holtzman and Cindy Sheehan.
    Personally met both people and also Gale Evans of COdePink.
    They stressed impeachment IS on the table of the American people no matter whta the Dem. leadership says. The constitution must be upheld and thos guilty of violating its most basic laws must be broughtt to JUSTICE. Impeachment is not to be feared since it will help heal the country and bring us back together.
    I have photos and some video I code post if you would like.

    I was impressed by the fact that the veterans' group managed to convey emotion and fact, but also was able to address the past, the present, and the future with a feasible agenda.

    I arrived late, so I missed most of the first panel. But the session with the bloggers was very informative. Not sure if the movement will really gain the strength it needs, with so many elected Democrats publicly running away from it, but I hope we will at least get some thorough investigations.

    For a national event, it was far too short. I drove 7 hours there and 7 hours back, and was there for only a little over an hour of discussion. That hour was excellent, but I would have preferred a full day, especially as, having to drive from NC, I arrived an hour late. I didn't know I had to pay in advance. I saw something about it, inconspicuous in the email message. Fortunately, a sympathetic guard let me in. But the requirement should have been clearly explained in advance.

    It showed how deeply people feel about continuing the movement to "clean house" before the next election.

    never been to an event of this sort that flowed beautifully, engaging, interesting thru and thru. quick, to the point, yet detailed, overview, micro macro perspectives, compelling personalities, freindly crowd.

    Got inspired, and the first panel was informative. The second panel was also engaging, but I didn't get it as well since it was all bloggers and I'm not into blogging.

    It was awesome to be in the company of so many kindred spirits. The energy level was palpable. It is my hope that we all take this energy and put it to good use to impeach Bush and Cheney!

    I was very disappointed that we were turned away by the person at the information desk. I was looking forward to this meeting.

    It's a shame more people didn't attend. I don't know whether it was because of the short notice, or a lack of publicity, or lack of interest(?), or perhaps some political issue I'm not aware of. But the program was very good.
