Sweet Jane, anyone who's ever had a dream

Our friend, and L.A. based blogger (on sabbatical right now) Jane Hamsher of FireDogLake fame, was on Keith Olbermann's Countdown tonight:

Jane and some other influential bloggers met with former Pres. Bill Clinton last week, and some pictures of that meeting caused some swooning in the winger blognutworld. See Feministing for further details.

Several of us L.A.-based bloggers have been courted by politicos like Wesley Clark, John Kerry, and Russ Feingold. So Jane's appearance, along with RJ Eskow's visit to Sean Hannity's radio show, and The Young Turks' addition to Air America Radio's talent lineup, emphasize that blogtopia (y!sctp) is becoming a collective major player in US politics.

Need further proof? Lieberman, party of 1....

For fun: here are the Velvet Underground doing Lou Reed's Sweet Jane:
