I shall post videos, graphs, news stories, and other material. We shall use some of this material in class, and you may review the rest at your convenience. You will all receive invitations to post to the blog. I encourage you to use the blog in these ways:

· To post questions or comments;

· To follow up on class discussions;

· To post relevant news items or videos.

There are only two major limitations: no coarse language, and no derogatory comments about people at the Claremont Colleges.

The syllabus is at http://www1.cmc.edu/pages/faculty/JPitney/gov106-fall15.html

Giuliani withdrawal and Interest Groups


It seems that Giuliani's lack of success in the nomination bid exemplifies a possible end of 9/11 politics, worrying The Partnership for a Secure America, who is afraid that the American public has forgotten about the threat of terrorism. In response, The Partnership for a Secure America has produced a television ad highlighting the dangerousness of, specifically, nuclear terrorism. However, this is a little too late for Giuliani (if it could have helped at all...).

I haven't been able to find the ad on youtube, does anyone know where it can be found?
