Beltway Happenings
April 25, 2007--Actor Sam Waterston, a volunteer spokesman for Unity08, addresses a National Press Club luncheon.  According to a press release Waterston stated that, "Unity08's goal is nothing less than to resurrect our lost political values and rescue tomorrow from today's neglect; to restore honest cooperation for the common good, and get agreement on the ominous backlog of crucial issues."  More concretely, Unity08 is seeking to build a movement that will elect a Unity Ticket consisting of members of both the major parties and/or an independent to the White House in 2008.  (Below) Doug Bailey, Gerald Rafshoon and former Gov. Angus King (I-ME) are among the key backers of Unity08.
