Just an announcement... from now on this blog will also cover international issues. I will still focus on U.S. politics, but I will cover developing international issues as well as my own analysis. One skill I've developed and one that is important to any viewer is how to interpret the media rather than just believing what it tells us. I'll post analyses of articles to showcase this. To reflect the new state of the blog, I am considering a new name and would be happy to take suggestions. Make sure the website with that name is open.
