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

Hillary Clinton Announces Position Against Keystone XL

Hillary Clinton announced yesterday, September 22nd, that she is against the expansion of the Keystone XL Pipeline. With this announcement, Clinton will lose some supporters within the Democratic party that support the building of Keystone XL. In the coming months, she might lose supporters of an interest group of primarily organized labor and working class, blue collar Americans. She believes that there are more jobs to be created with the introduction of cleaner energy in the US over the pipeline.
