Check out these posts from Ta-Nehisi Coates, Marc Ambinder, and Andrew Sullivan. I have found that I am to the point of going to "The Atlantic's" website almost daily. Not only are the various writers (including writers with whom I do not agree on political issues) excellent, but the people who leave comments are among some of the most interesting and well informed I've seen online. If you have not had an opportunity to do so, please go to the site, or start with the writers' links I've highlighted, and read away. It's well worth the time.
