RUSSERT: Welcome, all. Markos Moulitsas, let me start with you out in Las Vegas. You've been hosting a convention of liberal bloggers and political activists. What do you think your convention has achieved?

MARKOS: Well, you know, there's this perception of bloggers as being these anti-social people, typing away at keyboards in their parents’ basement. And I think what we’ve seen is that actually the people who read these blogs are a real cross section of the Democratic Party, a real cross section of America. We have all age groups represented; we have people that are blue collar, white collar. And at the end of the day, no matter how much they may love to be online and use the blogs to find each other, they crave that flesh-and-blood interaction, and that’s what they’re doing here today.
