Hello everyone, Michael Duffy here, posting for the first time. Thanks for having me aboard. And thanks to my patient handlers at Ricochet for putting up with my pathetically weak tech skills.
In a political year that already boasts an accelerating pace, the first week of June is shaping up as an important bell ringer: already this morning, the Supreme Court has begun to clarify what cases it will -- and won't -- hear during next year's term; Barack Obama and Bill Clinton, who haven't exactly been singing from the same hymnal lately, host a fundraiser tonight in NYC, one of three Obama will attend in a single evening; and as readers of this site know, Wisconsin's much-watched gubernatorial recall comes tomorrow. One of the smarter takes I've read on that vote, by the usually prescient John Ellis, tells us in very specific terms what Tuesday's vote means for the November election.
It can be read here. Let me know what you think.
