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.

The Executive and Congress

This Politico article relates to our class conversation about the relationship between Congress and the Executive Branch. It postulates that Obama’s strategy from here on out will be to let Congress take the lead on the deficit talks, in order to bring Republicans (who don’t want to seem to be allied with the president) to the table. The author of the article predicts that this move will return power to committee leaders who will, from now on, move the bills though Congress with minimal help from the White House.
