We are excited to announce that Heritage’s new president, Jim DeMint, will join us at today’s Bloggers Briefing. Even though he’s been with us since January, last Thursday was DeMint’s first day leading Heritage. He’ll be talking about his vision for Heritage.

DeMint joined Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey for an exclusive podcast last Friday, and discussed the need for a fresh message of conservatism with Chris Moody of Yahoo’s The Ticket.

We’ll also hear from Joel C. Rosenberg, bestselling author of several novels, including the recently published “Damascus Countdown.” The action-packed book tells the story of a Middle East war between Israel and Iran.
