What difference will the election make? That is, what policies are the major candidates for President likely to pursue? What are the advantages and disadvantages of those policies? In pursuing these questions, we will choose a few significant areas. As I write this in the spring, Iraq and health care are the leading contenders. Separate groups will research and analyze each candidate’s views, building arguments about the feasibility and desirability of the various programs. We’ll thus develop research questions and arguments by exchanging work in progress, and will find that our investigations take us beyond downloading position papers from the web. Strong partisans of one party or the other may enjoy the course, but I should warn you that I will encourage you especially to research the other side’s views.
