Turning thoughts before the caucus

Posted at 8:57 AM on January 31, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Tick-tock, we're getting closer to Super Tuesday. I'm pleased to find some interesting turns in coverage and conversation, so read and comment on these blog entries and the online discussion:

* News Cut blog: Cloutless in Minnesota
* Polinaut blog: Bill Clinton gets more coverage than all but two candidates
* MPR's mnpolitics.gather.com discussion group: Will the politics of the 2008 recession affect your vote February 5th?

Talk about the Santana trade

Posted at 3:29 PM on January 31, 2008 by Julia Schrenkler

Funny how Minnesotans can be surrounded by figure skaters and wintry temps but still focus on those warm and mellow summer days, when baseball is the game. Then again, business is probably the more accurate name for this game. Johan Santana is in the business of baseball, and played hardball when it came to money. Fans (and accountants) speak out on MPR's blog entries about the trade.

* MPR's Bleacher Bums: Santana is now a "former Twin"
* News Cut: The double standard for Twins fans
