Super Tuesday

CQPolitics is doing a Super Tuesday special. The page isn't completely ready yet, but I've finished my primary (pardon the pun) contribution: an animation starring staff writer Bob Benenson:

It works on the same basic ideas as the Iowa Caucus slideshow, being kind of a mix between Zero Punctuation (without the profanity or speed) and Stephen Colbert's The Word (without being outright snarky), using a stream of visual frames to complement and interact with the spoken interview. There's also a Constitutional Convention joke, and you certainly don't see THAT every day.

Future - Present - Past
