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.

Divided Government

On pg. 194 of "Leadership and Influence..." the fact that LBJ was acting within a divided government (Republican President and Democratic Senate Majority) is seen as a positive because it "freed [him] of the obligation to shepherd a White House" agenda through the Senate. Is a divided government (either House/Executive or Senate/Executive) seen in the same light today?
