This paper follows Noel's 2010 attempt to introduce journalists and practitioners to findings from professional political science which are relevant to the interpretive challenge of American politics but with which they may not be familiar. It extends his work by focusing on comparative politics this time - the domestic politics of foreign countries - and it argues that American politics might be interpreted differently if it were analyzed through the lens of comparison.
