Politics and Policy

I will probably start my classes today with a quick overview of this NYTimes article on the confluence of policy and politics.  It shows a number of great examples of how Obama is using his office to impact swing state voters from sending cabinet secretaries to those areas, to announcing support of same sex civil unions before a major fundraiser with a gay group to going against his own government and saying a sagebrush lizard was not threatened by oil and gas drilling and more.
