So I sit down this morning to start writing up homework assignments for my American Government class.  I'm using a text book that we got last year at my school but never used- for reasons I can never figure out.

Any way, I'm looking through the contents and there is a section called Profiles in Citizenship.  There some familiar names listed- Newt Gingrich, Christine Whitman, Bill Maher (a bit of a surprise), Russ Feingold, Sandra Day O'Connor, James Carville, among others.

But it was the one on page 594 that really stuck out.  Below the Sacred Squiggle to find out who.

A picture is worth a blog...

From American Government: Citizenship and Power.  EMC Publishing.  2008 Edition, page 594.
I think it is really great of the authors of this text- Christine Barbour and Gerald C. Wright both of Indiana University to include Kos in the book.  It really shows the power of the internet and of this blog.  It also represents the idea that a blog such as DailyKos is part of the mainstream media- and we are the gatekeepers.

Quick update:  Wow, on the rec list. Thanks everyone.   Hmmm, maybe I'll always put somewhat unflattering photos of our Fluffy Leader in

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
