Members of the Public Policy and Regulatory Affairs practice at the law firm McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP today launched Politics, Law and Policy Blog, a blog devoted to providing bipartisan policy insights and political intelligence.

Howard Dean

It is the rare blog that can be judged by its first day, but this one certainly started out strong, with a post by former Vermont governor and Democratic presidential hopeful Howard Dean, now a senior strategic advisor to the firm, reflecting on the Iowa caucuses.

Also contributing first-day posts were Mark Burkhalter, former speaker of the Georgia General Assembly and a senior strategic advisor to the firm, writing on what drives agendas in state legislatures, and Cindy Gillespie, managing director of the practice group, offering a lay person’s guide to the Supreme Court’s review of health care reform.

If this was the blog’s first day, I can’t wait to see the second.
