Not many new facts but a cold look at who got us where we are. Sheer reminds us that the Democrats deserve an ample share of the blame. Certainly true, but an electoral system that demands huge amounts of cash (without wanting to know where that cash comes from) is the fundamental culprit.

Gomory is telling us things we know but keep forgetting. I am looking forward to Part II.

Not so many facts, but a useful retelling of a story that needs to be told over and over. The main problem (not entirely Robinson's fault) is that it's all diagnosis and no prescription.

It is analysis, not news. But the point about Lincoln and the ex-Confederates is powerful and relevant.

A good story, but anecdotal. The insights need to be better backed up by statistics. Otherwise very good, and beautiful in parts.

Not news but a very disturbing analysis of the behavior of Congress and the Press when faced with a secretive and unscrupulous administration.

Sad but probably true. Better for the "Enquirer" to put it out today than for the republicans to use it after Edwards is proposed for a cabinet position. What is it with these people?

Good story in that it relates specific events and accurately contrasts performance with rhetoric.

More a "review article" than a "report," but a fair analysis of the so-called Obama flip-flops. It would have been more balanced (but much longer) if equal space had been given to examining McCain's much more substantial changes in position.

Good (if short) history of How It All Happened. Looks very reliable and has already cleared up a couple of misconceptions for me.

Gets one of the principals to tell her own story. A lot of it is "what I felt" but there's a lot of information that can be corroborated. I think people feel shy about looking too closely at John McCain. Let's get over it.

They should have worked out the math and explained more explicitly that leading by 8 points on 10% of the vote (total vote around 1.26 million) means an extra margin of about 9500 votes, and that Clinton was the winner even without the Republican cross-overs.

Excellent piece. An important examination of how competing ideologies have to coexist in a functioning democracy.

Excellent! Jamieson looks at the campaigns as campaigns, as if watching bugs battle in a jar. A very useful if somewhat olympian perspective.
