While waiting for the convention to start.....

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

If you have some time today, or just need a great politics fix while waiting for the opening gavel, you might want to check out Roger Simon's series called "Relentless: How Barack Obama Outsmarted Hillary Clinton."

In Denver this week, there will be cries of "sexism" and "unfairness" and lots of other things: yet there are still the issues of campaign strategy, financial resources, boots on the ground, and everything else that goes into a winning campaign. Roger has done a great job of collecting information from those who were there.

And as someone who lived for a time in Iowa, and attended the 1988 caucus -- the description of Iowans, and their attitudes to the caucus process, candidates, and elections in general is spot on.
