ABOUT THIS BLOG

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.

News is Power

As you read your Politico and/or Real Clear Politics feed in the weeks ahead, you'll be simulating true D.C. work. A New York Times Article reports that "Dozens of young aides throughout [Washington]...rise before dawn to pore over the news to synthesize it, summarize it and spin it, so their bosses start the day well-prepared."

The simulation has already begun.

And the article quotes DNC spokesperson Brandi Hoffine -- CMC class of `06, and alum of this course. She played Cornyn in the 2004 simulation.
