Updated

Tonight at the Beverly Hills Hotel, the Creative Coalition introduces the three chairs for the org’s activity at the 2008 Democratic and Republican conventions (it’s a non-partisan group, so yes they do show up for both). Tim Daly, Kerry Washington and Sue Kramer will lead the efforts (with a major assist from exec director Robin Bronk) to “harness the power and platform of Hollywood behind issues topping the national agenda in this election year.” Said Daly, “We have a great opportunity every four years to bring people together from the arts and entertainment community with those who influence national policy. We are able to be an important link between Hollywood and Washington.”
