The nonpartisan New America Foundation has landed John McCain and Hillary Rodham Clinton as keynote speakers at its annual conference May 15-16 in Washington. McCain, the Arizona GOP senator, speaks on the 15th, and Clinton, the potential Democratic presidential candidate, appears on the 16th. Democratic Massachusetts Gov. Deval Patrick also will participate in a “keynote conversation” with CNN anchor Candy Crowley on the 16th. In an email invite, the foundation says the conference will address these and other “Big Ideas for a New America,” many of them emphasizing tech topics:
