 Clean Elections - Making a Difference by Micah Sifry
MVCE built an advisory board of respected state figures and former elected officials, and put two retired businessmen—one the former CEO of the largest private employer in the state (the Bath Iron Works) and the other the former president of the Maine Chamber of Commerce—out in front as spokespeople.
The clean election movement has not been without setbacks, such as initiative defeats in Missouri and Oregon in 2000, where business lobbies and conservative ideologues moved to stem the grassroots challenge, often using entrenched incumbents to do their bidding.
Clean elections advocates have also had to fight at every step to ensure that their experiments were defended in the courts and properly implemented in the field.

 E-Notes: Party Politics and Foreign Policy in East Asia
In January 2005, FPRI convened a conference on the increasingly important role party politics is playing in foreign policymaking in East Asia, and the constraints foreign policy factors are imposing on party politics in some countries in the region.
Any party differences in foreign policy were therefore epiphenomenal consequences of the preferences of leaders who came to power on the strength of their positions on other issues.
Neither party can afford to ignore rising nationalism, but it is hard to gauge and harness; and stable or centrist party positions on foreign policy have limited purchase among a Korean electorate that, as elsewhere, votes largely on domestic and economic issues.
