I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material there. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. (Please let me know if you do not get such an invitation.) I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:
To post questions or comments about the readings before we discuss them in class;
To follow up on class discussions with additional comments or questions.
To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

Joshua "Lemon" Lyman

This is one of my favorite clips from the West Wing, and it hits most of the points we've made while dealing with how the White House can influence Congress. For those unfamiliar with the show, Josh Lyman is the Deputy Chief of Staff (and is modeled after Rahm Emanuel), whipping votes for a gun control bill.
