24 days: A who's who of black power brokers attends a fundraiser in September for Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's presidential campaign at the home of Washington attorney Weldon Latham. Among the attendees: Reps. Charles B. Rangel (N.Y.), Kendrick B. Meek (Fla.) and Sheila Jackson-Lee (Tex.), as well as former Denver mayor Wellington Webb and Motown mogul Clarence Avant.

110 days: The National Presidential Caucus, an online venture aimed at preparing voters for the flurry of votes set for next January and February, takes place. The goal is to use the Internet to organize face-to-face meetings of voters around the country. Former senators Bill Bradley (D-N.J.) and Warren Rudman (R-N.H.) have endorsed the concept.
