RSS UPDATE…. Several readers have run into trouble with the Political Animal RSS feed. Our apologies — we made some adjustments the other day and I think everything is now on track.

For those whose feed hasn’t updated in a couple of days, please re-subscribe — it should only take a moment or two — and that should fix the problem.

Sorry for the inconvenience. If, after you re-subscribe, the problem persists, let me know.

Our ideas can save democracy... But we need your help! Donate Now!
