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.

Tentative List of Roles

Here is a tentative list of roles for the simulation.  If there are other senators on the committees that you believe should instead be on the roster, I may be able to make revisions.  Also note that we shall fill out the list with volunteers from my parties class and from past simulations.

Start thinking about Claremont friends whom you would like to draft as members of the administration and as hearing witnesses.

Debbie Stabenow (Michigan)
Maria Cantwell (Washington)
