Regarding politicians' gaffes, Larry Sabato said something the other day that I couldn't agree with more strongly:
But, he adds, "if any of us had a camera on us 24 hours a day, the list of mistakes would be longer than our arms."
Forget 24 hours. I bet I say something that's sufficiently inarticulate so as to disqualify me from major political office every 24 minutes.
GOVERNING Politics is the place for news and analysis on campaigns and elections. If there's a ballot measure in California, a legislative election in Alabama, a mayoral election in Anchorage or a governor's race in Rhode Island, GOVERNING Politics probably is writing about it. We love everything about state and local politics, from polls and campaign ads to policy debates and demographic trends.
