Today’s edition of GPB’s “Political Rewind” begins with the struggle of the state Senate to stay off-line in an online world.
Senators refuse to allow committee meetings to be streamed on the internet, resulting in efforts by citizens (and at least one senator) to flout the rules with the help of Periscope and Facetime.

We closed with a reflection on Presidents Day, which this is. Brandon Rottinghaus, professor of political science at the University of Houston, speaks with us about how scholars now rank them all. Personally, Rottinghaus has a thing for Richard Nixon.
