* Profile of Lanhee Chen, Romney policy advisor and Harvard government Ph.D. Here is a post on one of Chen’s scholarly articles.

* Hans Noel: change the institutions, not the parties.

* Associate professors are unhappier than assistant and full professors.

* Rogers Smith on political science and the public sphere.

* Jennie McCarthy causes autism.

* Nate Silver rolls out the first of his election forecasts (and nowcasts); has a nice methodological section for those who want to understand how he is doing his forecasting. Obama is advantaged in both the forecast and nowcast, although the leads are tenuous.

* On the other hand, latest nowcast from Tien and Lewis-Beck shows advantage for Romney.
