Beltway Happenings
July 22, 2005--Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-NY) delivered the opening address at the College Democrats' 2005 National Convention held at the Washington Court Hotel.  During her speech she put in a plug for a new progressive think tank, the American Democracy Institute; she is serving as honorary chair of the Institute's youth initiative.
In the audience, in addition to hundreds of College Democrats from around the country, were members of Kids for Democracy, a group which grew out of the Kids for Kerry effort during the 2004 campaign..
