I know I want to do it on politics and the differing views between the two parties but I have to shrink it down more before I make a good comprehensive thesis statement. Sources I'm going to use will be those articles I emailed you or if I find better sources from the WSJ or the NYT like you recommended. I will most likely use the Gladwell essay because I like it a lot and could probably fit in my topic.
