links on politics

Democracy Now looks at the Democratic race so far. Delegates, super-delegates, disallowed delegates, brokered conventions, an Obama/Clinton or Clinton/Obama ticket, all sorts of interesting stuff.

Obama, Clinton, and the Working Class (at How the World Works). You have to hope the Democratic Party doesn't strike itself down with division and keeps the eyes on November.

The Economics of Barack Obama (How the World Works, again). Preliminary look at what economic policy under a President Obama might look like.

Where it went wrong for Mitt Romney (at The Economist). Sounds like he tried to please everyone and ended up pleasing no one.

Republican McCain asks conservatives for support. You have to wonder how McCain will get the hard conversatives into his camp. Negative aspersions on Democrat is a given (as stated in the article). Author John Scalzi says it'll be Romney as VP and he might have something there (though the discussion thinks not and offers alternatives).
