Bruce Bartlet is one of the writers of Capital Gains and Games, an excellent policy analysis blog, with writers who can provide great insight from their time as Washington insiders, but always rise above the talking points you hear on TV.
My favorite contributor there is Bruce Bartlet (bio). Bruce is best described as a member of the Reagan White House, who has left and now publicly criticisms the Republican party for its sharp turn right and towards style over substance.
Every time I read one of his articles, I feel like I learn a little something about the issue at hand — and you really can’t ask for more than that.
But if you are only good read him once, read about how Republicans have become increasingly unwilling to compromise, and how that is hurting us.
