Two Good Reads on Demopalooza 2008

Yesterday, I came across two very good pieces of commentary on Demopalooza 2008, which is my new name for this extended primary:

  1. Charlie Wheelan gives the best analysis I've seen of the subject of Senator Obama's infamous San Francisco remarks in "Small Towns, Big Problems." I wish I could write that well. Charlie will be teaching again this summer in the Public Policy Minor at the Rockefeller Center at Dartmouth.
  2. Thomas Palley holds forth on "The Curse of the Clintons." For the record, I do not begrudge Senator Clinton for staying in the race against long odds. I do fault her for her tactics. It's hard to come up with a better explanation for them than Palley gives.
