Can’t get enough interesting tidbits on the presidential candidates? Then keep reading:

The questions blogger Jim Horn would really like to ask in debates, at the Education Policy Blog.

Baltimore Sun education reporter Sara Neufeld joins the long, long list of people lamenting the state of education in the campaign.

And check out a couple of good posts on specific candidates.

Update: Don’t miss Mike Antonucci’s post on Hillary Clinton’s inconsistent stand on No Child Left Behind.

On Sen. Barack Obama, Alexander Russo picks apart the Illinois Democrat’s work in 1999 as a state senator on legislation regarding Chicago principal hirings-and-firings that’s still controversial.

And Swift & Change Able ponders Obama’s themes of “transparency” and inclusive policy-making and how those fit into his specific proposals for NCLB.

Eduwonk asks, and answers: Will all the Republican education policy wonks flock to John McCain? Of course they will!

Speaking of Sen. McCain, my favorite Ohio blogger and school administrator recounts Day One of the McCain campaign.

Meanwhile, my colleague, David Hoff, who waxes poetic on NCLB, examines the Bill Clinton factor.
