Politics 101 is taking a break from this blog to write for Blog of the Rings, TWT’s Olympic blog. I’ve been posting dispatches from Beijing and Shanghai and heading to Hong Kong today. Two days after I get back I’m headed to Denver for the Democratic National Convention and will be blogging with a vengence.

I wil point out an interesting story from the New York Times looking at television news’ efforts to appeal to young voters. It seems the big boys have all got a correspondent covering this angle, showing again the emerging importance of this voting bloc.
