I'm trying to figure out how to cite a presidential address that I retrieved from the GPO Access Page using Chicago Style. I can't find examples that seem correct and the Chicago Manual of Style Online is not being helpful either. What all do I need to include? I will post below some of the data I think goes in the citation. [more inside]

I'll make this super-simple: how anonymous is your vote in the United States? I'm currently working for a progressive-oriented group that does lot of work with Democratic politicians/figures - but I'm considering voting third-party in this year's presidential election. [more inside]

Ack! I completely missed the presidential debate tonight. Any idea where I can find the full video online? CNN only has clips and nothing's been posted on Youtube as of yet. Thanks a million!

Has anyone seen a pop-up-video style version of the presidential or VP debates that checks facts and names? If not, is there any organization I could suggest this to with any reasonable hope of having them implement it? [more inside]

Does anyone know the link to a website that displays a list of terms that are used by the president at speeches as a sort of cloud? For example:
blah blah blah blah
blah WAR blah blah
TERROR blah blah TAX
I've seen it before, I just can seem to find the link. The website also archives terms used in past speeches.
Thanks! [more inside]

I could offer excuses, but I won't. I'm unacceptably uninformed about the presidential hopefuls. Are there any good sites/articles offering summaries, breakdowns and/or analyses of the candidates' views/opinions on key issues? I'm primarily, but not exclusively, interested in the Democratic candidates.

So I missed the presidential primary debate yesterday. Is it available in its entirety somewhere online?
MSNBC seems to only have clips. Audio only would be just fine.

US election question: The US Presidential election is being held Nov. 2, 2004. Last election was on Nov. 7th. I was confused last time and this time because I swear that I remember learning that elections are always held on the second Tuesday of November. Anyone aware of whether that second Tuesday thing is a rule, and, if so, is there some historical origin to it? If it is a rule, anyone know why the last two elections were held on the first Tuesday of November?

History question: January 21, 1977. "The afternoon of infamy" for people in the limousine business. After having just been inaugurated, Jimmy Carter decides to exit his limo and walk with his family (and a large crowd) down Pennsylvania Avenue to the White House. What has been the trend since?
