Jefferson-Jackson Dinner

Hillary Clinton is pumping up the crowd at the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner in Richmond, Va. Jefferson-Jackson is the annual fundraising event for the Democratic party at the local levels throughout the country.

It's early on in her remarks. She's delivering red meat to the Democratic faithful. CNN's split-screen coverage shows her husband, former president Bill Clinton, speaking simultaneously at an event in Blacksburg, Va.

This dinner is remarkable in that it is the only place where Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama will be in the same place at the same time before Virginia's primary on Tuesday. It will be interesting to hear how -- and whether -- either tries to campaign against the other at before these party loyalists, or whether they will stick to campaigning against the Republicans.
