New Political Profiles

Catching up on reading. There are some good profiles of political figures, if you are interested:

From Philadelphia Magazine, Marjorie Margolies:

"The Feminist: Marjorie Margolies," by Sandy Hingston

Also from Philadelphia Magazine, Michael Nutter:

"The Problems of the Post-Racial Politician Operating in an Economic Downturn and Facing an Electorate Still Largely Segregated Along Lines of Class and Skin Color
Or, why black folks don’t like Michael Nutter, " by Patrick Kerkstra

From the New Yorker, John Boehner

"House Rule: Will John Boehner control the Tea Party Congress?" by Peter J. Boyer (December 13, 2010)

Interesting stuff.
