“The Trail” Launches


The Post’s political web project — “The Trail” — launched today, a “comprehensive chronicle of the 2008 race for the White House.”

A release states that “The Trail” will take “readers deep inside the campaign scene with reporting in a variety of forms, including breaking news and analysis, as well as photo galleries, video series and interactive discussions.” Such writers as Dan Balz, Anne Kornblut, Dana Milbank, Michael Shear, David Broder, Perry Bacon and Jose Antonio Vargas will contribute.

Best part? “Look for videos from two diners — one in New Hampshire and one in Iowa –that we have adopted for the duration to see what the election really looks (and tastes) like.”
