Nicole Vogel

Inside the Inauguration Portland Monthly publisher and founder Nicole Vogel will be our eyes and ears on the ground (and our elbows at the bar) at the inauguration celebrations in Washington, DC. She’ll be attending the Green Ball (the most environment-friendly pre-inauguration gala, with Wyclef Jean headlining), where she’ll attempt to arrive via bicycle, wearing an evening gown; the Texas Ball, which the Bush family is expected to attend; and the Emily’s List Inaugural Luncheon for the women of the Obama administration, including Hillary Rodham Clinton, Janet Napolitano, Hilda Solis, and Nancy Pelosi. Nicole’s brother, Scott Vogel, travel editor of the Washington Post and founding editor of Portland Monthly, will pitch in on the blog, as will their mom, Lisa, if mom feels so moved. Bonus! During Tuesday’s inauguration ceremony, Congressman Earl Blumenauer, from Oregon’s 3rd District, will join the conversation by posting blogs of his own. Elected to the US House of Representatives in 1996, Congressman Blumenauer has carved out a unique role as Congress’ chief spokesperson for livable communities. Portland Monthly is thrilled to include his Portland point of view in our coverage of this historic national event.
