With the busy political season kicking off, Ms. Wilson talks about her experience covering the political campaign as an official correspondent for a major web news service. Getting up close in the political scene began with a short drive from her home near Moline, Illinois to cover the Iowa Caucuses, and later included sleeping on an air mattress in an apartment in Denver along with a number of fellow bloggers mostly 30 years her junior.
On page 123 of Volume II Connie offers alternative titles to the Sarah Palin documentary “The Undefeated”.
How about : “Mooseferatu”
“Children of a Lesser Todd”
“Driving Miss Dizzy”
or “Gone is the Win”.
Connie was an eyewitness in 2008 and 2012 covering the Presidential selection process writing over 1,000 articles for Yahoo.com who named her Yahoo Content Producer of the Year for Politics.
