Some of you may remember many months back when Fred Barnes at the Weekly Standard gave national coverage to “The Colorado Model”. Certainly a fine piece in its own right, but you’ll find an even more detailed and insightful piece along the same lines in the new issue of National Review, written by my friend and former state representative Rob Witwer.
Check out “Rocky Ride”. By reading the piece, I learned that Rob and Adam Schrager of 9News (a Wolverine and a history major, a double-plus) are co-authoring a full-length book along the same lines titled The Blueprint: How Democrats Won the West (and Why Republicans Should Care).
I plan to read their book (apparently scheduled to be released in 2010) after I get caught up and read Schrager’s first book The Principled Politician.
