Greetings to the OTB audience. I know that some of you know who I am as James frequently links to my site and I comment here fairly regularly. Further, a number of you read my site as well.
I know that not all of you know my work, as James’ traffic out paces mine by a factor of over 10:1. 🙂
The funny thing is that in some ways blogging for James and myself started in e-mailing news stories back and forth to each other (with the requisite snarky and/or intelligent comments appended, of course) during our days at Troy University (then Troy State).
Some time after moving to the DC area, James started OTB, which inspired me to start PoliBlog roughly a week later. As such, he’s my Blogfather.
At any rate, I am happy to help out as James and Kim head to non-political climes to recharge.
As James noted below, my main areas of expertise are elections and Latin America, with a specific focus on Colombian politics. However, also because I teach in a small department at a teaching-intensive university, I am a generalist by trade, teaching courses in comparative politics, political theory, international relations and American government.
