Now that the 2008 Presidential Election is beginning to take shape, we’ve collected a handful of helpful sites to keep you informed about the race as it leads to election: Ron Gunzburger's Politics1.com tracks the politicians that have declared candidacy and those that may eventually get involved in the race. There is also biographical information and links for each candidate. Daily Kos, one of the best political blogs, features “Cattle Calls” which detail news from each camp and rate the candidate’s stock relative to the rest of the herd. Here are links to the two most recent cattle calls: Democratic Cattle Call, GOP Cattle Call 2008 Central offers complete coverage of the election that includes candidate’s biographies, positions on important issues, and schedule. In the same vein as Daily Kos’s “Cattle Calls,” it also features useful roundups of the activities of each candidate and how their stock has risen or fallen. Think Progress: NetTrends '08 details the internet presence of each candidate in six categories (website, blog, YouTube, Myspace, Facebook, Flickr) and provides links to each page. Election 2008 War Room is worth checking out, even if its only to see the pictorial power rankings for the two parties. This blog brought to you by the wonderful In These Times intern Brad Gardner.
