Some links

  • In Rolling Stone, Tim Dickinson has an interesting profile of John Edwards and his chances for the nomination. Dickinson points out that Edwards is the most progressive of the top-tier candidates and the one that easily polls the best in hypothetical face-offs against Republican candidates. Though other observers have been less optimistic about Edwards' Iowa-centric strategy.
  • David Rohde and David Sanger of the New York Times provide a fascinating overview of the evolution of America's Afghanistan policy since the invasion there: "how a 'good war' went bad."
  • In Slate, Ron Rosenbaum critiques "the worst op-ed ever" - Stanley Fish's guest column in the NY Times on coffee shops. Having read Fish's piece, I'm glad someone said something. Though Rosenbaum's article could have been a third of the length.
