As we enter the final two weeks of the most interesting and unpredictable presidential campaign in memory, the best way to keep up with developments, polls, and issues is by making regular visits to some of the seemingly countless political blogs and websites.
The sixteen listed below (in no particular order) are among the sites the Monitor visits several times a day (content is constantly updated) and would recommend to anyone seeking up-to-the-minute news and opinion on Campaign ’08.
