Yesterday's rally on the Mall, the 2007 March for Life was a tremendous success in my mind. I thought perhaps the first snow of the winter here in the DC area would dissuade some of the marchers but that certainly wasn't the case.



I haven't heard the numbers but there were certainly thousands upon thousands of marchers coming down 8th street to the Mall where a good forum of speakers were assembled to address the crowd.



One of my favorite Congressmen is Mike Pence. He addressed the crowd and as he was making his way back to the Hill with his staff I stopped him for a quick interview.



After the rally I headed back up to the HQs for the Family Research Council for the Blogs4Life event.

Ramesh Ponnuru spoke first. He's the author of "Party of Death", an excellent treatise on the culture of death that the Left had engendered over the past three decades.



After his keynote, which addressed the major biases in the media I asked Ramesh what he thought about Hugh Hewitt's remarks about the media admitting their biases upfront so we can get the lie of the green.

He thought it made sense and that it would basically bring us back to 19th centry letters where everyone already knew and admitted each others biases. Ramesh is incredible articulate and full of one-liners. Like this one:

"Students at Hogwarts speak the name of Voldermort more frequently than the press mentions partial birth abortion."

Next we listened to a panel of bloggers discuss the issues of the day. These bloggers included:

Jonathan and Deborah Flora, A Distant Thunder
David All, media strategist/President of The David All Group
Rob Bluey, Heritage Foundation
Mary Katherine Ham, blogger at TownHall.com
LaShawn Barber, blogger at LaShawnBarber.com
Tim - blogger at Pro-Life Blogs

After some good discussion about the websites for 2008 Presidential aspirants, Mary Katherine Ham discussed the risks that candidates face when getting into the blogging fray:



Next, the discussion turned to Democrats vs. Republican online fundraising. Robert Bluey had this to say:

Funny how you did not mention Brownback once even though he completely dominated the entire March for Life weekend...

Where was Romney? Where was his campaign?
