Cattle Call Watch
From Jan. 2002
Large gatherings of Democratic activists provide a tempting draw for Democratic presidential candidates.  The activists size up the candidates in a manner comparable to the way potential buyers at a cattle auction size up the animals, hence the name cattle call.  This page lists some of the cattle calls but is not intended to be a complete list.

1. Sometimes candidates or prospective candidates show up at different parts of an event.  At the DNC Winter Meeting in Washington, DC Jan. 17-19, 2002, Gephardt spoke to the general session, Dean and Edwards addressed the College Democrats, and Lieberman popped in at some caucuses.  When National Stonewall Democrats held a reception and awards ceremony in Washington, DC on March 20, 2002, Dean was a featured speaker, but Gephardt and Kerry also made remarks.  Dean, Gephardt and Edwards all spoke at Campaign for America's Future's "Reclaiming America" conference in Washington on April 12, 2002.
