Here is FINAL of the Democratic Party Platform as pdf.
Barack Obama’s national security advisor, SUSAN RICE, will join a program tomorrow featuring KAREN KORNBLUH, principal author of the Democrat’s party platform and a senior Senate policy advisor (currently on leave) to Senator Obama that the New America Foundation is organizing on the just completed pre-convention Democratic Party platform.
The event will stream live here at The Washington Note as well as other blogs around the country. The meeting will take place on Friday, 18 August, from 12:00 pm til 1:45 pm EST.
I will be moderating this interesting discussion between Karen Kornbluh and Susan Rice and will weave in the commentary of two of my colleagues — STEVE COLL, President of the New America Foundation and a Pulitzer Prize winning journalist for the New Yorker and MAYA MacGUINEAS, who heads the New America Foundation’s Fiscal Policy Program and serves as President of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget.
When I receive it Friday morning, I will post the final version of the pre-convention platform document here. It is slightly modified from the draft version I previously posted.
Karen Kornbluh is former Deputy Chief of Staff at the Department of Treasury and is currenlty on leave as Policy Director in the Office of Senator Barack Obama. She also previously served as Director of the Work and Family Program at the New America Foundation.
I should also add that I approached and invited the Republican National Committee about the possibility of doing a similar meeting in September.
