Photo: Mark Makela/Getty Images Intelligencer staffers Benjamin Hart, Jonathan Chait, and Ed Kilgore discuss whether it’s wise for presidential contenders to go after the guy who left office back in 2017. Ben: Ready to chat? Ed: Sure. Jon: One minute … Ed: Jon’s color guard is performing. Always happens before his chats. Ben: (95-year-old man slowly shuffles out of view.) Jon: And now … the participants in today’s chat … from Michigan, 47 years old, an opinion journalist living in Washington … Ed: Jooooooon Chait! Jon: Time for a commercial break. Ed: Haha. Ben: Last night, the Democratic candidates talked quite a bit about the urgency of defeating President Trump next year. But there was also some criticism directed at Barack Obama’s administration, if not the man himself. This is largely because Joe Biden, the front-runner, has hugged himself closely to Obama’s legacy.

The University of Colorado Boulder’s media college announced Monday that it will stop funding its student-run news outlet, the CU Independent, at the end of the school year, and will instead develop a more faculty-led “student multimedia enterprise” to launch next fall. The move by CU’s College of Media, Communication and Information is meant to offer students “an academic experience featuring a strong faculty mentorship component,” and will see the college’s relationship with the CU Independent “evolve” as the student news website becomes fully independent from the journalism program by summer. “We want to establish an innovative student learning laboratory that will, in turn, create an even more vibrant student media presence on campus and in the community,” Lori Bergen, the college’s founding dean, said in a news release Monday morning. “The new enterprise, which our students will help us develop this … [Read more...] about University of Colorado to stop funding student-run CU Independent and launch a more faculty-led news outlet

We must re-ignite that American spirit in order to create good jobs, to keep America safe from terror, … [Read more...] about Ryan Frazier: I am working tirelessly to unify our party
To the degree they track U.S. foreign policy, Coloradans view global trade as a net positive, support strong defense spending and are divided when it comes to energy policy and climate change. Those are some of the findings from more than 125 interviews the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace and the University of Colorado Boulder Leed’s School of Business conducted. Researchers interviewed state officials, economic developers, teachers and other individuals and groups to better understand their concerns regarding the middle-class and their views on foreign policy. “We are at an interesting moment, where the future of U.S. foreign policy is uncertain,” said Salman Ahmed, a Carnegie Endowment senior fellow who is overseeing a three-state study.Carnegie has been a foreign policy think tank for nearly 110 years. But Ahmed said policies crafted in Washington, D.C., are often done so in a bubble without a full understanding of impacts on middle-class Americans. … [Read more...] about Coloradans favor free trade and strong defense spending
