Wow! It's been a couple weeks since I last posted anything here. I guess I am making up for lost time by posting a couple times today.
A few weeks ago, I was asked to write an article for a website called "New Ideas for Government" that seeks to provide recommendations for the next administration. Here's an excerpt:
The 2008 presidential race has been remarkable for many reasons. One of the most intriguing aspects of the contest has been the incredible diversity reflected in the candidates and their running mates. Consider the unprecedented role of gender, race and religion. Each of these elements has been present in previous elections, but never before has there been such a unique confluence of these factors.
While these three aspects of the race have received the most press, one may contend that the election will turn on a fourth factor: age.
Please read the full article and make comments over at New Ideas. Of course, I welcome dialogue here as well.
