A Survivor's Guide for Presidential Nominees.
"It isn't easy to say no to the president of the United States, even if he lacks the legendary persuasive powers of a Lyndon B. Johnson."

What a wonderful insight into the world that is politics. I've only just begun to read all there is on the site but I'm fascinated, there goes some more time away from what I should really be doing.

Brookings has been working on this for a while. (Don't miss the PAI home page with its detailed appointment tracker.) Related materials demonstrate that the issue of governmental transitions is getting lots of attention these days -- at least in the civilian beltway. (The 2000 transition might have gone much smoother if it weren't for the legal fight over the election; there had been a lot of academic resources assembled with an eye toward making January 20, 2001 a little less jarring for the people in office as well as the governed.) See White House 2001, which is doing some Monday-morning quarterbacking; Presidential Transition 2000 at Berkeley; and Transition to Governing Project, an umbrella project funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts, which seeks to coordinate some of these efforts.

Great link. I wish they'd had this back when *I* was a presidential nominee.

Kidding.

And Dhartung, your vast Internet knowledge (and your vast store of knowledge in general) never ceases to amaze me.
