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.

For those of you who need a break from binging through House of Cards (if you haven't already, that is), here's a couple of interesting reads.

If you're thinking about who you'll play in the Congress Simulation, here's some things to give you a few ideas about potential characters. The Washingtonian's Best and Worst of Congress 2012, and Who Are the Best and Worst Bosses on the Hill? 

And for those of you with political careers in mind, remember that opposition researchers will be watching. Politico: Confessions of a Political Private Eye

The author of the Politico article sounds like Mike Ehrmantraut. http://breakingbad.wikia.com/wiki/Mike_Ehrmantraut
