It's been a while, so let's go: It's Question Day. You ask questions, I answer them. Open topic. Money in politics? Presidential nominations? Midterm elections? Senate rules? Democracy or representation? I'll answer as many as I can. Leave them in comments here, or via email, or tweet them to me, @jbplainblog.

I always have fun doing these. So start 'em coming.
