When veteran political analyst Charlie Cook speaks, people listen. This article at National Journal looks at recent polling data for older voters who tend to represent a disproportionate share of a midterm electorate.

John Cavadini Corrects George Weigel on, well, The Heart of the Matter

 | 

This review of George Weigel's book, "Evangelical Catholicism," got lost in my emails so I apologize for taking so long to link to it. It appeared at First Things and is written by Notre Dame's John Cavadini.
