Claims, warrants, evidence
Andrew Samwick points to a disjuncture between claim and evidence in a recent speech of Hillary Clinton's, and dissects the warrant. I don't carry a brief for or against Sen. Clinton (or any specific candidate), but I appreciate the incisive examination and I hope we'll see more of this applied to all candidates' speeches as 2008 approaches.
