Granted, the beer summit had a catchier name, but today’s Health Care Summit is still hotly anticipated. Democrats want to prove that Republicans don’t have any substantial ideas for health care reform and Republicans are eager to show that the whole process is flawed.

The Sunlight Foundation, a webby, nonpartisan transparency organization, announced it will route around the traditional media to provide its own interactive broadcast of the proceedings, with information that many TV channels can't (or won't) share. Jake Brewer, the group's engagement director, says that as each politician speaks, Sunlight's website will compliment video footage with "campaign contributions that the person speaking has received, their connections to lobbyists and industry, personal finances, and key votes that the leaders have made on health care in the past." Like C-SPAN meets Common Cause.
