I second that Welcome

UPDATE: Unless Ebert and/or Roeper are going to interview her, it looks like Christine isn't on ABC this morning after all...

A hearty round of applause for Christine Cegelis in welcoming Tammy Duckworth to the race (posted on her blog, dailykos, and MyDD). It's a tough pill to swallow, knowing that the machinations of Rahm Emanuel are working to oppose one of the most impressive grassroots races in the country. But Rahm has his reasons, and that's great.

There's no point in being mad at Emanuel and the DCCC, or the media for their inane coverage (so far), or certainly Duckworth herself. There's only a renewed energy in knowing that you can play a part in the hottest Congressional primary in the country, which will lead to one of the hottest general election races in November. And in knowing precisely where you stand with Christine, on the war, on the economy, on the environment, on choice, you name it.

As a testiment to the newly high-profile nature of this race, Christine will be joining Duckworth on This Week with George Stephanopoulos tomorrow at 9:30 a.m. on Channel 7 (ABC). Originally it was supposed to just be the Major, but now Cegelis is there too. Which is awesome.

Anyway, the rap against Christine, said again and again on certain blog comments, is her fundraising. Whether or not it's a fair rap (I don't think it is), the best way to counter it is to give .. GIVE ...GIVE!!! I have a page up on Act Blue in support of that effort, and if you haven't done so yet, or even if you have, think about supporting the campaign by donating today!

Thanks everyone!
