''Howard Dean will headline conference on civic engagement''
"VANCOUVER -- Five months after campaigning ended and President Bush was given a second term, the election of 2004 continues to reverberate. A sign of the intense interest the election generated is a speech that former Democratic presidential candidate Howard Dean will deliver tonight at Skyview High School's auditorium. All 1,100 seats are spoken for: 700 were snapped up by ticket buyers at $10 each, 300 are being given to Washington State University Vancouver students, and 100 are left for guests and dignitaries. Anyone still wishing to attend can show up at the door and hope for a reserved ticket that isn't picked up -- organizers expect to have about 50."-from the story in today's Oregonian.
