Got a minute? Take a spin through these campaign-related posts and tidbits from this week:

The Hoff digs up some good information on John McCain. Perhaps I will have to change the the “Incomplete” grade I gave the Republican senator from Arizona.

Joe Williams offers a thoughtful analysis of Obama’s openness to school vouchers.

Advocacy group Pre-K Now wants “Sam” to go to school, so they’ve launched a national campaign dubbed “No School for Sam” urging the presidential candidates to make universal pre-k a national priority. That’s a far easier sell to Democrats than to Republicans.

An Eduwonk guestblogger wants his ED in ’08 T-shirt. Perhaps ED will send him one?

Speaking of ED, Roy Romer makes the case that good schools=strong economy. But does presidential involvement=good schools?
