US election: Political one-stop shopping at The Washington Post


Any day that doesn't start with decent coffee and the satisfying crunch of a newspaper in my hands is not a good day. Staring at a monitor is not really a reasonable alternative. But I have to concede that newspaper web sites do intriguing, useful things that go way beyond their newsprint versions.

The other day I drew your attention to how The Wall Street Journal was aggregating the financial bailout news on its site. Today, it's politics 24-7, brought to you by The Washington Post's roundup, called Political Browser.

US politics is the local industry in and around the District of Columbia, so it's not surprising that the Post should be splendid at it. But (unlike the WSJ's roundup), the Post doesn't emphasize only its own coverage. Its Political Browser pulls together politics from all over: blogs both left and right, snippets both amusing and appalling, videos and photos, and links to pieces in many other publications.

Some of this may be of interest only to the politics-obsessed, although there seem to be an unusual number of us around just at the moment. But even if you have a life and so are looking only for succinct overviews, this is expertly done one-stop-shopping for US politics news and comment.
