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.

Senator Kyl's Departure May Create a Fight for Leadership

Arizona's Senator John Kyl announced that he will be retiring at the end of his term in 2012. This opens up a new Senate seat and, more importantly, the Number 2 spot in the Republican leadership in the chamber. Favorites to take Kyl's place are Senator Cornyn of Texas and Senator Alexander of Louisiana. Alexander currently occupies the Number 3 spot and is in charge of crafting his party's message. Cornyn is in his second term running the National Republican Senatorial Committee, a position that may help him politically if the Republicans can take over the Senate in 2012.

Here is a POLITICO article on the possible power struggle.
