I've been amusing myself this winter break by perusing through a copy of the first Almanac of American Politics from 1972. Having started going through it alphabetically, the picture of Southern politics it offersn in the immediate aftermath of desegregation is especially interesting. I've been thinking of doing a serieson this state by state, summarizing the Almanac if anyone's interested. Feel free to inquire about any particular state, Congressional district, and/or politician.

Does it have any commentary about ideological groups, coalitions etc? I'd be especially interested to hear it's take on the makeup of the Nixon/Humphery/Wallace coalitions in 1968.

I feel conservative around liberals, and liberal around conservatives. I just can't win.

It's such an awesome book.  I also own a copy, if you needed any help.  Smiley
