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.

Senate Rules Reform

Senator Tom Udall (D-NM), whom I worked for this past summer, tried to reform the Senate filibuster at the beginning of this session of Congress. Although, his efforts were not entirely successful, he did move party leaders toward more modest reforms such as limiting the executive branch nominations subject to Senate confirmation, making it more difficult for senators to anonymously block nominations or legislation, and ending certain stall tactics.

Here is a Politico article on the subject.
